Each year we choose a home charity to raise money for in school. We are happy to announce that this year the children have chosen to support Alzheimer’s Society .

We will be fundraising throughout the year to support this excellent charity but wanted to let you know about the first fundraising event RAPS will be participating in.

As you may already be aware, Alzheimer’s Society organise a sponsored walk called ‘Memory Walk’. As a team of staff, we have decided to participate in the Memory Walk this year. Our head girl, Leana and head boy, Vishal will be participating in the walk with us too!

We will be completing this walk on Saturday 6th October at Bents Exhibition Park in South Shields. We have a Memory Walk team set up for RAPS and if anyone would like to join our team and complete the walk with us, the details are below.
