Andy Cole completes his Camino
5th October 2016
Our chair of Governors, Andrew Cole KSG, completed his Camino pilgrimage from Tui on the Portuguese border to the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela. He enbarked on his Camino to help raise money towards completing a sports hall at the College and to raise awareness of the campaign. Mr Cole commented: "It was one of the best eperiences of my life. I met lots of very interesting people on the way who were walking for many different reasons. Some of the days were long and hard but the camaraderie of fellow pilgrims and the 'buen Caminos' from local people sustained me and my walking partner, John Slade, over the 145 kilometers we covered over six days. I prayed for our College community at every stopover and during a wonderful pilgrim's Mass at Santiago de Compostela at the end of the pligrimage. Lots of people asked about St Richard Reynolds and some even donated to the appeal. I can't thank people enough for the many messages of support and encouragment and for all the gernous donations. With Gift Aid, £18,900 has been raised so far and I hope people will go the extra yard to help exceed the target of £25,000 towards the cost of the sports hall".

The Charlie Shaw Regatta
27th June 2016
The Charlie Shaw Regatta (300m from White Hart to Twickenham Rowing Club) consists of a set of races in Explore rowing singles, doubles and quads; a fun way to introduce juniors to racing. Because of the differing sizes and ages of the rowing squads, the St Richard Reynolds pupils were organised into mixed teams from different squads for the day. Nuala and Gab were in the winning team and Millie and Eden were both awareded medals for their effort and hard work. In the St Richard Reynolds team, Charlotte won a single, Charlotte and Eden won in a double and the SRR team also won two quads, in which all our rowers were a part of so it was brilliant and we are so incredibly proud of all our athletes!
Congratulations to all who took part and to those who helped prepare the pupils so well for this Regatta.
