Open Evening is an opportunity for us to give students, from years 5 and 6, a taste of what Richard Lander School has to offer.
Hundreds of our students give up their evening, in return for a pasta dinner and a few merits, to give whole school tours and represent subject areas by running exciting activities or answering any questions our visitors may have.
This year saw our visitors insulting each other in Shakespearean, tackling the Crystal Maze, making photo stands and fridge magnets in DT, dipping marshmallow in their very own recycled chocolate fondue with Garden Club, shaping bread rolls, visiting the English department’s Circus, handling Henry the Boa Constrictor, lighting Methane bubbles and ordering ‘pain au chocolat’ in French! The wonderful sounds of our Jazz Band and school choirs filled the corridors, trampolining acrobatics and competitive sport took place in the gym and sports hall, the Art department created a huge bird filled tree and a giant wall freeze and there was even a guest appearance from Sherlock Holmes.
Altogether it was a night to remember and we are very grateful to all the wonderful students who made it possible.
