RSP+ Gallery

Rushmoor Schools Plus had a very special evening in May, celebrating recent successes with 80 guests at the Holiday Inn in Farnborough. Adam Gunn from Manor Junior School kindly took photos during the evening.
Entertainment was provided by the the St. Mark's Primary School Choir. There were presentations about the work of Rushmoor Schools Plus by Mark Sammes (Chairman) and Tony McGovern (Partnership Manager), Matt Smith of First Wessex Housing Association, Jen Hill from the PIER, and Richard Lane from Autodesk Ltd. Closing remarks were made by Andrew Lloyd from Rushmoor Borough Council.

We were blessed with sunshine at the Aldershot Funday at Beaumont Junior Junior School. Hundreds of children and parents enjoyed the outdoor areas at Beaumont, and the endless activities taking place.

A hall full of proud parents

The weather didn't put us off having our latest Family Funday with six Rushmoor schools at Wavell. Thanks to fantastic willingness to move to a wet weather plan a great afternoon was still had by all - dancing, singing, free food tasting, sports, crafts, information stands, and families spending quality time with each other - all the ingredients of our Family Fundays were as ever in place!

Rushmoor Schools Plus helped to plan this year's Rushmoor's Got Talent final at Princes Hall.

Eight acts from Cove, Wavell, Fernhill and Connaught Schools performed for the judges and large audience, with Sophie & Bethany the eventual winners from Wavell School.

A fantastic night, well done to everybody involved in making it happen!

Rushmoor Schools Plus has developed great local links with Autodesk Ltd., a world leader in 3D design, engineering, and entertainment software.

Richard Lane from Autodesk was able to organise a tour of the Autodesk Gallery at their San Francisco base for a teacher, Debs Down from St. Mark's Primary School, and her family, including sons Alfie and James, during the summer holidays.

The Gallery has more than 20 different exhibits regularly on display that showcase the innovative work of Autodesk customers. And yes, that is a real Oscar!!

Nearly one thousand 11 and 12 year old pupils from Rushmoor schools attended an inspirational skills festival at Princes Hall, Aldershot on 30th June and 1st July.

Young people from year six and seven from sixteen Rushmoor schools were invited to take part in the ‘Motivating our Middle Years’ festival. The event was organised by Rushmoor Schools Plus with First Partnership EBP, and was sponsored by Autodesk Ltd.

Rushmoor Youth Council members

Rushmoor Youth Council members celebrated its first birthday at the West End Centre with invited guests. The Youth Council was formed from pupils at local schools to represent the views of all young people living or going to school in the borough.

Helping each other

Beyond Horizons is a Family Learning project in Aldershot supported by several organisations, including Rushmoor Schools Plus thanks to a Big Lottery grant. This summer lots of family arts and craft activities were organised in Heron Wood.

Making a noise at Aldershot Park

Rushmoor Schools Plus organised several family fun days across the borough's schools during the summer.

Here are some of the photos from the events

RSP funding enabled the 2009 Think Safe event to expand, and for the first time include all year 6 pupils in Rushmoor.

This meant that during the two-week event 800+ year 6 pupils took part in hands-on scenarios dealing with the dangers and hazards they may face in everyday life.

The event was free to all schools.

The Rushmoor Youth Council meets to represent the views of young people living or going to school in Rushmoor. These photos are from a Team Building weekend in Wales, where they started to get to know each other better, and agreed their targets for the year.
