50th Anniversary of RSG on this site
Rainham School for Girls has been on this Derwent Way site for 50 years this year. By way of celebration we invited back some students and teachers from that time, provide them with afternoon tea, and had a photographic display from the past 50 years. It was a pleasure to see the staff and students from that time reunited, laughing about 'old times' and bringing us all up to date on their careers and families. Our MP Rehman Christi and the deputy mayor also joined us. To finish the afternoon, we buried a time capsule containing items our current students thought would be interesting talking points, when dug up in 50 year time.
