Fun and Games at Epperstone Court!

20 Year 9 Rushcliffe students did us proud on Wednesday when they visited West Bridgford’s Epperstone Court Care Home for an afternoon of fun, games and friendly banter with the residents. Their behaviour was impeccable – polite, friendly and helpful – and they certainly lifted the spirits of all the residents, many of whom commented on how much they had enjoyed their afternoon. Whether it was darts, giant connect or more cerebral cribbage, it was a definite 10 out of 10 from everyone involved!

Healthy Eating Week winners showcase their products

The students made some fantastic products and it was a tough task for the food teachers to narrow down to a range of recipes which would be suitable to be sold in EATZ. Mr Simms and Mrs Naylor in the canteen then chose 5 recipes which they thought would work well and on 5th October 2017 these products were made and sold in EATZ as part of the Rushcliffe menu.

This was a fantastic opportunity for students to see their products being made in a large quantity and enjoyed by our school community. A huge congratulations to the following students for an amazing effort and wonderful products.

Lauren Cruddas – 8J – Breakfast Bar

Millie Weighill – 8H – Fruit yoghurt and Mango Smoothie
