A summary of RGS activity in lockdown
As Headmaster, Shaun Fenton welcomes parents and students back to school for the remote summer term, we take a look at what has happened in the month since we locked the doors.
School is a strange place without our students – bringing energy, noise and bustle – and we miss them terribly. But teaching and learning continues, thanks to the use of technology and the creativity and enthusiasm of teachers and students.
Indeed, our dedicated staff continue to prepare a wealth of extra-curricular activities for students, as well as supporting their pastoral needs.
We are incredibly proud of all those in our community who are working on the front line to keep us safe and to keep the country moving. As a community we are living up to our commitment to make the world a better place if we possibly can.
We want you to know that we’re doing our bit, by sharing just some of the activities that have taken place in the last four weeks:
- School remains open and we are looking after a few key worker and vulnerable children
- We have stripped science labs, food tech and art rooms for gloves, aprons and goggles, which have been sent to support NHS and other front line staff
- Our Design Technology department has made over 1,000 visors, which have been delivered to a number of local healthcare organisations. Production continues apace
- Our minibuses have been registered with Reigate and Banstead volunteers distribution hub
- The Foundation team has been calling some of our older or vulnerable Reigatians to offer a bit of company or practical help
- With help from volunteers, we have coordinated the pick up and delivery of shopping, prescriptions, and had cheques banked, for local Reigatians who have sought our help
