RGS Springfield fundraising for Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust
RGS Springfield children will be fundraising for The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust, a charity that raises money and awareness for rare childhood cancers
9th March 2020 — RGS Springfield recently welcomed ambassadors Chris and Michelle from The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust. The charity was chosen by our School Council as one of the three charities to support this year with a variety of fundraising efforts. The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust was founded in memory of Grace who died of a rare form of childhood cancer. The team at the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust works to raise awareness, fund research into rare childhood cancers and produce educational materials as well as supporting families who are affected by these illnesses.
Our pupils learnt about Grace’s story and what the charity does and what any money raised might be used for to inspire them to put love and energy into their fundraising. It is important that we find charities that they can learn from, connect with and feel the positive impact of their contribution.
Mrs Laura Brown Head Mistress at RGS Springfield says, “The children are planning lots of fundraising to support all their charities this year including cake sales, sponsored swims and a fun run.”

22nd March 2019 — On Friday 15 March, RGS Springfield held their first School Science Fair, to conclude a week of fabulous Science activities, in celebration of British Science Week.
With a strong focus on environmental issues around the globe, the children were tasked with choosing a current environmental problem that they felt passionately about. They then had to choose a role, either that of an Educator, to educate visitors on the problem, or Inventor to invent something that would help alleviate the problem. The Science Fair competition was open to all children from Reception to Year Six and there were some fabulous entries! The competition was judged by Science teachers from RGS Worcester Senior School and they were impressed with the standard of entries and the children’s knowledge.
Each child received a medal for participating and the winner from each year group, received a science kit, to continue their science learning at home. It was lovely to see the children so enthused about their subject and the School hall brimming with parents and visitors, all excited to view the projects!
Headmistress, Laura Brown said: “I am so proud of the hard work and enthusiasm shown by all the children who entered. They were knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their projects, showing great team work and creative flair, as well as real understanding of some of the environmental issues faced by the world today.”

RGS Springfield Take on the Government - Year Six visit the Houses of Parliament and Quiz their MP
18th January 2016 — RGS Springfield Take on the Government
Year Six at RGS Springfield travelled to London to as part of their project focusing on democracy, government and how laws are made. Children have been looking at how the country is governed through the Monarch, Prime Minister, House of Lords and House of Commons.
The children visited the Houses of Parliament and met Robin Walker MP for Worcester, who spoke to them about the debate on healthcare that was going on at the time and the work he does in his job. He also answered questions about about being a Member of Parliament.
Mrs Angela Webster, Year Six teacher said, “The tour of the Houses of Parliament highlights the elements of government and helps the children to understand how people become either an MP or a Peer. Seeing the Speaker's procession with the mace which represents the Monarch in the Commons and the gold throne in the House of Lords really brought our learning to life.”
Finally the children took part in a workshop run by the Education Unit at The Houses of Parliament where the pupils took part in a quiz, elected a Prime Minister and Speaker and conducted their own debate on the death sentence. They also had the opportunity to experience, through role-play, the process of a bill becoming law.
rs Webster concludes, “The children loved this workshop and several said they would be really keen to join the debating club as they hadn't realised how interesting politics and debate could be. Harry said that the trip was thrilling and has made him far more interested in debating and current affairs and Sian would like to be Prime Minister!”
