RPCC Bake Off


In aid of Year 11 Prom, Regents Park students organised and ran the first ever RPCC Bake Off.  Initially billed as a fun way to raise money, teachers and study supervisors soon revealed their competitive edge as the fight to be crowned Bake Off Champion got underway.

There were some shenanigans, with contestants’ cookers being turned up, down or off, whilst Mr Sinclair spent most of the final searching for his ingredients and recipe. Mr Strange, took no chances bringing in his own chef’s mixer and Mr Archibald, in an attempt to temperate his butter, melted it to dripping point on his office radiator.

Cooking highlights included Mr Brown’s attempt at making popcorn – someone should have told him it was microwave popcorn – and History teachers Mrs Blake and Mrs O’Brien’s attempt at making cookies. Sorry ladies, but the ‘It’s the taking part that matters’ line does not excuse burned products!

The final saw staff battle it out to produce the ‘showstopper’, with Mr Strange bravely making doughnuts, Mr Archibald attempting choux pastry and Mrs Moussa making meringue – in a microwave!

But, it was Mrs Rogers who was crowned RPCC’s first ever star baker with her beautifully decorated, sparkler adorned chocolate torte.

All cakes were sold off at break time with many students complimenting the staff bakers. A film show, edited by talented media student Dominic Green, was broadcast to students who paid a £1 for the privilege of watching the very first RPCC Bake Off.


Fun at Farm School  


This week a select group of Regents Park students were given the opportunity to attend Farm School. The owner commented on how well behaved they were saying they “were the best bunch of kids” that had ever visited: they were polite, keen and respectful of the needs of the animals. He also commented on their huge smiles!

The visit could not have been more perfectly timed: two calves had just been born and students were the first to see one calf suckling its mother for the first time – a magical experience.

Victor, the horse, now has a beautifully plaited mane and tail courtesy of some students, while others learned that farm work isn’t just about petting animals, but involves dirty work too. One student got stuck into the ‘mucking out’ and others had to tramp through mud.
