Ruislip High celebrates its ten year anniversary
The school was proud to mark ten years since the opening of Ruislip High with a special event on the evening of Thursday 8th December. The event was split into two halves. The first half was led by Mr Rich, Deputy Headteacher, and Ms Cotton, Assistant Headtecher, with presentations on the themes of “In the beginning” and “Traditions” looking back at the first five years of the school’s life. There were musical performances by former students Sarah Stapleton (vocal solo) and the school’s first Head Boy Karan Sagoo (violin). Current Year 13 students George and Hattie also performed an excerpt from last year’s Romeo and Juliet production.
The second half was led by Headteacher, Dr Lecky, and Mr Davies, Deputy Headteacher, focussing on the second half of Ruislip High’s first decade. Presentations were delivered on the themes of “The Sixth Form”, “Community”, “In and out of school”, and “Inspiration”. Student performances included Jamie and Sofyah (Year 9) performing a comedy and magic routine. There was also a poetry reading of “10th Anniversary” by Jamini in Year 11.
The school was delighted that its first Headteacher, John Goulborn, was able to attend the event and he was thanked by Cllr Eddie Lavery, Chair of Governors. At the end of the evening, audience members were invited outside to see ten lanterns being lit to represent the students, parents, staff and governors who have helped make Ruislip High the excellent school it has become.
Dr Martina Lecky said "It was a wonderful evening, showcasing our students' talents; it marked our first decade by reflecting on our collective achievements to establish and develop a successful school both in, and for, the local community."
