CHARACTER AND SCHOLARSHIP Places everyone... and action RGS drama students were visted by MASHED Theatre Company in Term 1 for a tailor made workshop based on the Senior Drama students’ studies of Shakespeare and Realism. “ We combined the Merchant of Venice with physical theatre and shaped that into a per formance,’ ’ said MASHED creator, Matthew Caffor, who combines beatboxing, playing guitar, singing and performing on stage. “I ’m a massive nerd of literature so it fits for me to adapt shows for English and Drama classes.

CHARACTER AND SCHOLARSHIP Life lessons learned RGS Primary extended in-class Health and Humanities lessons with visits to The Life Education Van in Term 1, taking on a range of topics including hygiene and nutrition; friendships, the human body; the impor tance of being safe, respectful and considerate online; smoking and illegal drugs. “It’s important for kids to know when they should talk to somebody about what ’s going on online,” said Madeleine Green, Year 4. It was “great learning how to be safe on the internet” according to Elsie Macnaughtan. Classmate Kurt Lynch warned: “Don’t put anything online that is unkind or mean.” Year 4 teacher Mrs Sonya Whitehead said the Life Education Van supports our School’s curriculum by reinforcing good values and good choices. “It also educates children on the importance of their decisions in relation to their bodies and their friends,’’ Mrs Whitehead said. “ This includes being active and healthy, being a good friend and being safe online.” “I t also highlights the importance of looking out for each other and talking to parents or another adult if they ever feel unsure or unsafe; very pertinent lessons in this digital age.” Each session presents students with an issue or issues with memorable and engaging activities connected to that theme. “It was scary learning that some people could hack into your computer camera to watch you in your own home,” explained student Patrick Robertson. RGS Assistant Head of Primary Mrs Janet Spark said the Life Education Van supported the School’s values of character and citizenship as well as providing information to help children with facts, opinions and decision making. “Life Education’s Elizabeth Hills, along with Healthy Harold, loved meeting our children and helping them better understand Life Education,’’ Mrs Spark said.
