During lunchtime on Wednesday, Year 10 students participated in a fundraising event to support the Atorkor Development Foundation in Ghana.

RMS has had a longstanding relationship with the Foundation and the village of Atorkor, located on the coast in Ghana’s Volta Region.

During this week’s event, pupils organised exciting stalls, games and activities for both their peers and staff to enjoy. It was a fantastic way to spend lunchtime in the sunshine, having fun for a worthy cause.

Pupils even got the chance to soak their teachers as we marked ‘National Thank a Teacher Day’.

Previously, RMS successfully raised funds to build ‘Ruspini House’, a nursery that provides crucial early childhood education to the community.

Now that the construction is complete, our attention has turned to addressing period poverty, supplying educational resources, and supporting the salaries of nursery teachers through fundraising endeavours.

We are excited to share that a team of RMS Sixth Form students and staff will be returning to the village this July after an extended hiatus.

We eagerly anticipate hearing about their experiences in the weeks to come.
