Remote House Competitions

Dear students,

We truly hope that you are settling into the routines of working at home. We know that many of you are missing the ebb and flow of the school, including the many House activities that help to bring us all together as a wonderful community. We would like to continue the Roundwood ethos, despite current circumstances, to enable opportunities for collaboration, communication and challenge among the students. We are therefore introducing a series of House competitions that you can take part in, should you wish. Many subjects and areas of the school have come together (virtually) to produce the list of competitions available. The full list of opportunities can be found in the attached document. We would like to reiterate that you can opt into as many or few challenges as they wish.

House competitions:

The SLG will be communicating the different competitions each week. House Captains and School Captains will be sharing the information and promoting each competition within their Houses on social media and through House Leaders. Every participant will gain House Points for their House, along with the opportunity of winning competition prizes! There are plenty of different activities and competitions to choose from including: a 30-day creative challenge, #create30; 100k in May raising money for charity; as well as various scientific, humanities and technology challenges. Please look at the list and deadlines to see whether there’s something you think you would like to take part in.

How to take part?

Details of the competition can be found in the attached document, as well as on the website. We have set up a Google Classroom for you to upload your work – the links are included in the document and will be shared weekly as reminders. If you are having difficulty uploading, you can email housecompetitions@roundwoodpark.co.uk and we will include their submission into the relevant competition. You must include your NAME, FORM and COMPETITION on any work you upload or submit.

Celebration evening

When we are together again, we will have a presentation evening where the submissions, winners and competitor’s work will be celebrated. It will be a fabulous evening, demonstrating how students’ creativity and perseverance prevails, despite adversity and tricky circumstances.

Should you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact us, we would be pleased to help.
