St Richard Reynolds Foundation Governor, Monsignor WIlliam Saunders (pictured, right, with Mr Cole and youthful-looking Jim Chester) hosted a 70s Quiz Night in aid of the College on Saturday Night in the parish hall at Our Lady Queen of Peace, East Sheen. Monsignor Bill captained a SRR team including Seamus Joyce and Paul and Deborah O'Donnell. Despite some very tricky questions, SRR finished in third place (before you ask, there were more than three teams!). The College is very grateful to the parish for its unswerving support and particularly for naming St Richard Reynolds as its named charity for the year. The evening raised £472.42 for the College Building Development Fund.

The Right Reverend John Sherrington, auxialliary bishop of Westminster and Chairman of the Education Commission made a pastoral visit to the College on Wednesday. The Bishop concelebrated a votive Mass of the Feast of St Richard Reynolds in the College Hall with Father Nigel Griffin, parish priest of St Edmund of Canterbury, Whitton. Bishop Sherrington in his homily explained that a bishop carries a crozier or crook like a shepherd and that his flock are not sheep but all those attending and working in Catholic schools in the Diocese of Westminster. He also referred to the noble bravery of St Richard Reynolds and the example he set us all in standing firm in his beliefs and to the invitation of the College motto for us to see the good things of the Lord. This was Bishop Sherrignton's second visit to St Richard Reynolds, he previously visited with Cardinal Nichols at the official opening of the College a year ago. The pastoral visit included a tour of the College and the Edwardian Building due to be refurbished in the new year. Bishop Sherrington commented on the prayerful attention of pupils during Mass and the delicious lunch he shared with pupils and staff and also noted the great progress made since his last visit and praised all those involved in making the College a success. Huge thanks are due to all those who helped make this Mass a beautiful celebration by preparing the hall and altar, by reading, by serving at the altar, and to those who sang and to Miss Firman for directing the music.

SRRCC V Chessington

Report by Saoirse Frisby

netball 2The Rockets played a very physically challenging game against Chessington in the Surrey League with only 6 players available to play. The girls managed to pull it out of the bag in the first half and were in the lead with some great scoring from Rowena. This was the first time for some of our players to play and in particular Emily made excellent contributions. In the second half, Chessington managed to score a few baskets, but we kept our cool and continued to attack and made some lovely passes to each other. It was a great team effort and I was selected as woman of the match! Final score 40-9.

Chilli comp

Around a hundred parents and friends gathered on Friday for the first social event of the academc year - a Chilli and Chat evening organised by the Friends of St Richard Reynolds. The event gave new parents especially a great opportunity to get to know other parents with pupils in the same form, to meet some of the teachers, 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. Huge thanks are due to all those who cooked, served, manned the bar, donated prizes, ran the raffle and helped to clear up afterwards to make the evening a great success.
