FV 2FV 1On Friday 6th, the kitchen hosted a "fruit and veg fun day" for reception and year 7 pupils. Pupils were able to sample a variety of new and unusual fruits and some more familiar ones, cooked in different ways. Pupils were incredibly engaged and shocked to hear that the tasty cakes they were sampling contained parsnips and beetroot! 

We also took this opportunity to obtain feedback from the pupils on the current menus. Our caterers, Wilson Jones will review this feedback and make some alterations to the menu in the New Year taking into account what our pupils said, whilst ensuring that nutritional standards are maintained.

Pope Francis VNHis Holiness Pope Francis (pictured left with Archbishop Vincent Nichols and Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor) has sent an Apostolic Blessing to St Richard Reynolds Catholic College to mark the official opening of the College last month. The Blessing is being framed and will hang in the school as a reminder of the Holy Father's gesture to our community. Last year, Pope Benedict sent a message to the governing body through Monsignor Saunders assuring those involved in the planning and preparation of the College of his prayers. Archbishop Nichols will present in Rome a commemorative mug produced for the official opening of St Richard Reynolds to Pope Francis on his next visit. The College is grateful for the support and prayers of the Holy See.

Around a hundred parents and friends gathered for a Chilli and Chat evening organised by the Friends of St Richard Reynolds. The aim of the evening was for parents to get to know other parents with pupils in the same form and to share their ideas and experiences over a glass or two and a bowl of chilli. The bar was busy and the talk was flowing interupted only by a game of head and tails and the customary raffle. Father Jeremy Trood of St Margaret's was the first among many to have a lucky number. The College hall was soon restored to normal as everyone lent a hand to tidy up and put away tables. A sizeable group repaired to Friends HQ, The Albany, for a debrief. Huge thanks are due to all those who worked so hard to make the evening a success.
