Golf SRR

Last Friday 21st April 2017 saw the first event of the recently formed St Richard Reynolds Golf Society, The Spring Cup, take place at Sunbury Golf Club. A massive vote of thanks is due to governor, Seamus Joyce, the founder of the Society and the mastermind behind a very successful and enjoyble first event. Thanks are due to the whole Joyce family for sponsoring the Spring Cup and for providing the prizes. Seamus's report follows:

"18 excited golfers made their way to Sunbury Golf Club. After registration and fortified by bacon rolls and coffee, they formed into six groups of three with the first group teeing off at 14:40. There was a wide range of handicaps ranging from +1 to +28! Many stuck to the fairways and greens while others took a more scenic route recording over eight miles on their step counters! "Four" was heard all over the course in a variety of accents, some loud and some screamed. The Society snack buggy was welcomed by all and provided sustaining snacks and drinks throughout the event. On arrival back at the club house we tucked into a beautiful curry which was appropriately washed down with a few beers.".

The following players were presented prizes afterwards:

Overall Spring Cup Champion 2017 with 40 points Arturo Lawson
Overall second place with 38 points Marcus Ferguson Jones
Overall third place decided on count back on 36 points Chris Webster
Longest Drive 18th Hole Mark Rimmer
Longest Drive in two 12th Hole Brian Studdert

Easter comp













On Wednesday 29th March, Year 3 performed their Easter production, entitled 'Good News'. The performance documented the Easter story but with a modern twist. The story was told through news reporters of the news channel ‘Good News' and for each day of Holy Week there was a news report with live action from the events.

There was acting, singing, dancing and even news reporters being projected onto a big screen! The Year 3s were so fantastic that they not only made the audience smile and laugh, but also shed a tear or two with their very moving crucifixion dance. It was a fitting and memorable way to prepare for Easter.

Thank you to everyone who was involved in producing such a memorable performance and well done Year 3- you did us very proud!

PN confession

ConfessionIn preparation for Easter, all High School students have had the opportunity in College to make their Confession or just to have a privare chat to a visiting priest on each of the last four Fridays in Lent. The programme proved to be extrememly popular with many of our pupils and many of the clergy, who gave so generously of their time, reported back that they found it to be a very rewarding exerience for them too. The College is so lukcy to have the support of so many clergy from Westminster, Southwark and beyond who support us by visiting to celebrate Mass and other Sacraments. Particular thanks are due to those who came in to hear Confessions; governors, Canon Peter Newby (St Margaret's) and Monsignor William Saunders (East Sheen) and to Father Richard Whinder (Mortlake), Canon John Weatherill (Southwark Diocesan Financial Secretary), Father Stephen Langridge (Richmond), Father Ulick Loring (Twickenham), Father Bernard Boyland (Hampton), to Father Philip Baptiste (Kensal New Town, formerly Hampton Hill) and to first-time visitor, Father John Byrne (Feltham).

18th March 2017


The St Richard Reynolds Schola was given the unique opportunity to shadow the world-famous choristers of Westminster Cathedral for a morning. It began with sung Mass at 10:30am in which we heard the choristers' beautiful singing. As Saoirse noted, Mass was far more reverent with the singing at relevant moments. After Mass, we had a short tour of the Cathedral, visiting the chapels and admiring the mosaics both old and new. At 11:50am, we were taken behind the scenes to the Song School and observed the Director of Music at the Cathedral, Martin Baker, ,lead the choristers through a rehearsal. It was an eye-opening experience seeing the choiristers diligently mark their musical scores and answering complicated theory questions with impressive ease. The St Richard Reynolds group left fthe Cathedral feeling very inspired and with many different ideas to take back to Twickenham! Thanks to Miss Morrell for organising such an valuable and iinspirtitonal visit.

world book day

WBDPupils and staff engaged in World Book Day last week by dressing up as their favourite literary character. Hagrid, Willy Wonka, Sherlock Holmes and Peter from the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe rubbed shoulders with a pack of stray dalmations, assorted woodland creatures and more than one Wally from Where's Wally (Can you spot one?). As well as having a lot of fun, pupils was raised money for our Lenten charities and for the Sports Hall Appeal.
