Ripon Cathedral School Update
Week ending Friday 25th May 2018
Performing Arts Week
Mighty Zulu Nation Theatre Company
Performing Arts Week was kicked off to a noisy and entertaining start by the Mighty Zulu Nation Theatre Company. The day began with an amazing show where the dancers and musicians performed for the whole school. Workshops were held for every year group from Year 1 to 6 when children learned to sing and dance in the South African tradition. The children then performed to each other and the parents of Year 2 children who this term are answering the question 'Why go to Africa?'

Lining Up to Dance
The Governors need you!
The Governing Body are currently looking for a new recruit who might have financial or business skills to add to the team. The commitment could be as few as four meetings a year. If you are interested and have the necessary skills please pop in and speak to Mrs Rich in the school office.
