Chernobyl children’s visit – Tuesday 27th June, 2017

This summer many of our sixth form students took part in a day of activities offered for the young children from Chernobyl in Ukraine, visiting Ripley during their stay with host families in Lancaster.  The Year 12 students organised and ran games sessions, a swimming session, a teddy bears' picnic and a treasure hunt, amongst other things.  

The science department helped out by conducting a rocket making session, which provided a most satisfactory end to the day when the rockets were launched (some to great heights) from the Chapel lawn.

The weather was disappointing in the morning but the sun came out after lunch and everyone enjoyed the fun and games outside.

 We look forward to welcoming the children back next year.
