Berlin Report - Year 11 Visit

In the last week of Term Two a group of 24 Royal Harbour Academy History students ventured off to Germany to investigate the Third Reich as part of their GCSE and IB History courses. We travelled by coach to Munich and arrived at our hotel in the city centre. On the first day we visited the Allianz Arena in the north of the City and was given a tour of the stadium. In their museum you could see the history of Bayern Munich and how even this football team had been persecuted by the Nazis in the 1930s as their manager had to move abroad because he was Jewish. We finished the evening bowling.

On day two we had a coach tour of the city and saw the highlights. We ended up overlooking the site where the White Rose Movement threw leaflets exposing Nazi atrocities in Poland across their University campus. In the afternoon we visited the Deutches Museum and that evening had dinner at the Hofbrahaus. In 1920 Hitler released the first Nazi programme in this very same beer hall.

Term Two 2015 NewsletterRHA

With Christmas just around the corner our last newsletter of the year is a real celebration of the wide range of exciting class based and extra-curricularactivities that have taken place this term. All the activities that students take part in, whether it be a World War One day for Year 9or a charity show for the Motorhouse Project,are designed so that students develop theirlearning or important life skills and I am grateful to all staff that work hard to run all our extra-curricular events.

More importantly for our students than any enrichment activities are the day to day lessons that they receive from their teachers.

Visit to Sarah Thorne Theatrepanto
On Tuesday 15th December 75 of Royal Harbour Academy students went to the Sarah Thorne Theatre in Broadstairs to watch their Pantomime production of “Aladdin”. The students had a great time watching the show and got into the spirit of the Pantomime performance.

Drama teacher Naomi Talling said “The show was really funny and entertaining. The students conducted themselves very well and were a credit to the school. It’s important for us that we give our students the opportunity to watch as much live theatre as possible.”

Harbour Harmonies Live on Air!choir

On Wednesday 16th December after school, a number of pupils from the Harbour Harmonies performed four songs live on Academy FM. Performing on the Bob Mower Show, their set included an Adele number plus three traditional Christmas songs.

Assisted by Mrs Marshall, the group sang superbly and the girls were heard across the local area by many friends of the school. New singers for the Harbour Harmonies are always welcome and should see Mr Orwell or Mr Condy to start in January.

A Message Regarding Possible School ClosuresRHA

If at all possible the school will try to stay open in order to make sure that students are able to continue with their lessons and learning. In the very rare event of the school needing to close parents should check the school website for information, listen to BBC Radio Kent, Heart FM or KMFM Radio for announcements or Kent County Council’s school closure website

Should the school need to close once the school day has started we will contact parents by telephone and will only release students once we have had confirmation from a parent or guardian. It would be helpful if parents would ensure they are contactable by phone if it looks likely that we may have to close and I would also ask that all students have a nearby address or place of safety that they can go to should we need to close at short notice.
