It also saw over 150 children in oversized blazers being waved goodbye to by their mummies outside the RMGS gates.
Thu, 01 Jun 2006 13:36:55 GMTWith ?fat tests? being introduced into primary schools, and the government taking its lead from TV chefs, one might well be depressed at the state that our diets have fallen into, whether by our own lax attitudes or otherwise. Fortunately for RMGS students, our beloved school is once again leagues ahead of the rest of the country with its Healthy School Scheme. But is it actually working?
Thu, 01 Jun 2006 13:36:44 GMTThere is one subject which, on the mention of its name, teachers and sixth formers alike begin to experience a rise of emotions inside. To some it is a waste of time, to others an important subject which should be respected, in the timetable it is simply "General Studies".
Thu, 01 Jun 2006 13:36:31 GMTWith the incredible popularity of the iPod, and software such as iTunes and the iTunes Music Store becoming market leaders it seems that Apple, the company behind all this is reaching newfound levels of success, and demand for their own brand of computers and operating system (Mac OS) has never been higher...

Thu, 01 Jun 2006 13:36:16 GMTOvermark has learnt that proposals to change the structure of the school day have been rejected. The plans, which have been adopted on a trial basis by some other schools, would have seen non-teaching time reduced in order to fit in structured activates towards the end of the day. According to our sources these plans were not welcomed by many teachers who felt it would not have left sufficient time at registration for pastoral care.
Thu, 01 Jun 2006 13:36:08 GMTA dedicated team of highly organised year 13s has been beavering away preparing this year?s prom. Despite many complaints about the price, the venue and the team members themselves the event looks to be a roaring success, and certainly not something to be missed. Just to confirm some details, the prom is open to all students in Year 13 as well as staff and will take place on August 24th at the St George Hotel in Rochester. Tickets are on sale at lunchtime at a price of £25 for students and £10 for teachers. You can get more details from their website: http://rmgs-prom.blogspot.com
Thu, 01 Jun 2006 13:35:59 GMTIn a recent evaluation the school did not meet the full requirements of the new Investors In People standard. We have been assured that this is not unusual because of the new criteria of the standard. It does however mean the school is placed in a 6 month probationary period in which it must show it is making headway to meet the full requirements. We have been told that the school failed on minor issues, including confusion about the role of middle management, and inconsistencies in the induction of support staff.
Thu, 01 Jun 2006 13:35:47 GMTWe?re back! Yes, despite hefty opposition from the powers-that-be we have briefly returned, because we couldn?t bear it any longer. To be honest we have no permission to be printing and distributing this paper anymore, but that doesn?t stop you reading it!
