OPEN EVENING SUCCESS
We recently hosted our annual Open Evenings on Wednesday and Thursday. Over these two evenings, we had the pleasure of welcoming over 1000 parents and Y6 pupils, providing them with insights into Rainhill High School and the educational opportunities we offer.
Our faculty members showcased these opportunities within their departments, providing a well-rounded experience for our guests. The evenings featured live dance, drama, and music performances, along with practical demonstrations such as our working pizza kitchen in the food department. PE offered trampolining and table tennis, while construction presented live demonstrations. The art department allowed for hands-on interactive painting and drawing experiences.
Additionally, our History department used Oculus headsets to take students on virtual journeys to iconic historical moments. Mathematics offered problem-solving challenges in the form of the BIG NUMBER competition, and the Science department conducted live experiments, including dissections, methane bubbles, circuit creation, and fossil exploration. In the English department, attendees engaged in activities like giant scrabble, collaborative story writing, and blackout poetry.
Geography engaged participants with an interactive 'Where in the World' quiz, while Languages hosted a language matching challenge. Computing featured activities such as 'Cracking the Safe' using coding, along with opportunities to explore 3D printing and VR headsets. The RE department provided insights into religious artifacts, and Social Sciences conducted a 'Branding Taste Test' challenge. PSHE offered a platform for Y6 students to contribute to our debate wall, and our new library held a book fair featuring a diverse selection of fiction and non-fiction titles.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our student leaders, guides, and subject helpers who played a key role in the success of these Open Evenings. We could not be prouder of how they conducted themselves, representing Rainhill High School and our community with distinction. Special thanks to our Head Students Alicia, Leo, and Lilia for their exemplary leadership and contributions. We also appreciate the support of parents who attended and facilitated their children's roles as student leaders. Your presence and assistance are greatly valued.
