Year 9 RE Trip

retrip1

On Friday 20th November, a group of Year 9 students visited both Manchester Cathedral and the Manchester Buddhist Centre.  The trip was a fantastic success.  The students enjoyed a full tour and activities in the cathedral; and even a fire alarm wasn’t enough to dampen their spirits and confidence when practising meditation in the Buddhist Centre. Both venues said they were very impressed with Rhyddings students and would gladly invite us again.  Well done to all who attended.

Media students conquer the ‘Dragons’ Den’

The Media Studies team with Lancashire Police Commissioner Clive Grunshaw and Business Studies teacher Mrs Bancroft.

On Monday 16th November, four of our Year 11 Media Studies students visited Accrington & Rossendale College to take part in a ‘Dragons’ Den’ style competition – and came away with the full amount of £1000!

George Berry, Beth Graham, Damon Smith and Ruby Wilkinson pitched their ideas for a campaign aimed at raising awareness of and reducing the alcohol consumption of young people in Hyndburn.

In preparation for the competition, the students produced mock-ups for a poster campaign, developed an idea for a short films and compiled a comprehensive business plan.

At the event, the students pitched their ideas to a panel of ‘dragons’ that included Clive Grunshaw, Lancashire Police and Crime Commissioner, Rick Wilson of LCC Trading Standards, Luke Bidwell of charity Early Break, Tim Grose of LCC Young People’s Service and Lisa Hartley Head of Safeguarding and Personnel Development.

Despite the intimidating panel, the students presented confidently and professionally which very much impressed the ‘dragons’. As a result, the team was awarded the full amount of £1000 to put towards creating their awareness campaign. They also received a Windows tablet computer for the Media Studies department and an impressive glass trophy.

Tiger Heart are coming to Rhyddings

tigerheartTiger Heart are Ellen, Tia-Rose, Helen and Charlotte, a brand new girlband for 2016.

After months of rehersals the band are now on the road with their hardwork paying off after landing a lucrative spot playing on the Blackpool IFEST celebrations alongside The Vamps, Professor Green and Lawson. Radio stations are already loving their infectious pop sound and the band have already been asked to perform at many upcoming Christmas Light Switch On events for Capital FM and the Bauer network.

Over the past month Tiger Heart have been in the studio putting the finishing touches to their debut EP with their co-written tracks ‘Never Gonna Bring Me Down’ and ‘Get The Party On’ quickly becoming hits with everyone who hears them.

If Tiger Heart’s cool, catchy melodies, great harmonies and tight dance routines are your thing then make sure you check them out!
