Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge

Wednesday the 10th May was the West Essex finals of the Speak Out Challenge 2017, which saw Aliya Silverstone performing for Roding Valley High School.

As Alice Redknap was the 2016 West Essex Speak Out winner she MC’d the event, doing a brilliant job and doing herself and the school proud.

Aliya Silverstone’s speech was entitled ‘gingers’, detailing the daily struggles and stereotypes put upon readheads and entertained the audience from start to finish, earning her 2nd place in the competition. A video of her speech is below.

All in all it was a brilliant night and Roding Valley definitely left a lasting impression.

Yr11 Essex County School Champions!

On Tuesday 9th May, the Yr11 football team eventually ended up winning the Essex cup final against St Bonaventure’s. It was an end to end game that had everything. Injuries, goals, yellow cards & last minute equalisers.

The game finished 1-1 with our goal being scored by Ben Harris. The game went to extra time & with a lot of tired legs, cramp and injuries the boys fought hard and held on for the game to go to penalties.

The penalties swayed either way with both teams missing penalties, and it went down to the last penalty taker and eventually Roding Valley come out as victors winning 9-8 on penalties.

The boys have worked so hard for this since yr7, and they thoroughly deserve every plaudit and praise they receive from this massive achievement.
