What an exciting week!


With the start of the Rugby Word Cup
tournament this week we have been
fortunate enough to have been given two
opportunities for students to get involved in
this inspiring event. On Thursday, Christs
school students helped pass a rugby ball
from Richmond School to Richmond School
to celebrate the start of the tournament.
Earlier in the week some lucky students
enjoyed a lunch time break at London
Welsh RFC with the World Cup trophy and
rugby legend, Jason Leonard.
See it all, and more, in pictures on the
Facebook page.

As always, see our Facebook page for


pictures and fixture list. Just click here.

Refugee Crisis in Europe


So far in 2015 more than 350,000 have made the perilous journey across the
Mediterranean Sea, including 7,600 children who have arrived in Italy alone. They need
our help. Serena, our Chaplain, has begun a collection which we will distribute to
relevant charities offering support to refugees. Please give what you can spare.
From Monday we will be collecting
items such as:

Blankets

Warm Clothing

Toothbrushes & Toiletries

Childrens Toys
Please bring all donations to the Chapel

In Collective Worship this week Mrs Kieran introduced students to our new behaviour for
learning focus which complements our Christian values of Love, Justice and Peace.
Students will hear READY RESPECTFUL SAFE a good deal this year as these are the
characteristics that all students are expected to demonstrate. Some examples of how
students might show off these qualities are listed below:To be READY to learn, to take exams, to develop skills and talents, to be a good citizen, to go
out into the big wide world and earn a living!
To be RESPECTFUL towards each other, towards the staff (whether they are the experts who
teach in the classroom or the wonderful support staff who help to keep the school running so
efficiently), towards the school itself and their environment
To stay SAFE to think before they act; to follow instructions for health and safety reasons; to
use social media responsibly
In addition students are being reminded that RESTORATIVE approaches underpin our
behaviour for learning practice. Consequently staff will have restorative conversations with
students when they need to be prompted about being READY RESPECTFUL and SAFE.
To celebrate and recognise those students who demonstrate that they are READY RESPECTFUL
and SAFE, staff will be making more positive phone calls home and writing positive postcards.
Lots of students have received these already so WELL DONE to those who have.

Homework Club

Printing in School
Students are given 1.00 at
the beginning of Year 7 and
thereafter must bring in
cash to top-up their print
account. Please note colour
can be selected, but is
more expensive and should
be used sparingly.

The school will be running a Homework Club in the Library


from Monday 14th September.
The club will offer PC access in a quiet, safe environment
where learning resources and adult supervision are available
from 8:00am

until 4:30pm each school day.

Students also have access to printing in


the library as long as there are sufficient
funds in their printing account.

Mark an envelope Printing,


state your childs Name &
Tutor Group and send it to
Mrs Garrett in the School
Library.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Blessed are the


peacemakers,

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is


hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where
there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there
is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.

for they shall be called


children of God.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be


consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to
be loved as to love.

Matthew 5:9

For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we


are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal
life.

Amen
