Year 9 have been working on a project called “First Give” through which, groups of students work with a charity and have to present a case for supporting their charity to a panel of judges. After narrowing the groups down to one per House, the boys presented their cases to the judges which included two representatives from the local council a school governor and Mr Williams, Head of Year.
All the boys did fantastically well and were a credit to themselves and Rutlish, please congratulate them if you see them today. Special mention to Mauricio who presented alone as his partner couldn’t attend.
The winning team where from Spartans who were representing “Faith In Action”, (Valentin, Jason, Marcus, Imeron, Zunair, and Kireeshan) had done an amazing job and were awarded £1000 for their charity.
Runners up were teams from Carthaginians (Arthur, Joe, Chris, Sajean, Andy and Rohan), Kelts (Fred, Valdyslav, Rhys) representing “Retreat Animal Rescue” and “Children in Crisis” respectively. These groups were awarded £250 each to give to their charities.
Finally a big thank you to Ms Targuisti and the Year 9 Tutor team for going above and beyond in organising the event.
