Over 2000 people attended the second RPA PTA organised, Fireworks Spectacular on Saturday 4th November and were treated to a real Guy Fawkes night experience. The fireworks were sensational, generating constant gasps from around the Richmond Park Academy field and the accompanying music sustained the atmosphere throughout. Over 20 Richmond Park Academy parents were fire marshalls for the day and year group parents and students were out in force supporting the bar, snacks and novelty stalls. The hog roast and BBQ also went down a storm! 

Local parent, Lucy D said, "I just wanted to write and say how fantastic the fireworks were on Saturday.  It really was such a community event - we brought along grandparents as well as my younger daughters and the whole evening was brilliant.  The fireworks were quite amazing but the most impressive bits were the students themselves who were selling novelties - they couldn’t have been more engaging - we were really impressed."

See below for a slideshow of some of the sights from the evening - with a special thank you to fireworks photographer Peter Edwards.
