Adventures of the RSM House Bears

After first making an appearance at RSM in the Autumn Term 2020, these lovable characters were spotted by pupils all over school enjoying all aspects of school life.


They were first seen observing playtime and waving to the school’s happy learners from the Headmaster’s office. They were then kindly helping out on the Reception desk – in a Covid secure way of course, eating their lunch in the lunch hall and reading books in the school library.


At Christmas they enjoyed the festivities and were seen near the school Christmas tree and decorations and waved the children off and wished them an enjoyable break. Since returning to school in 2021 they have supported many school events such as World Book Day and Red Nose Day by dressing up and collecting charitable donations.


Still unnamed, it was during a lockdown House assembly that the RSM Heads of houses presented three different possible inspiring people for the RSM pupils to vote for. They were a scientist a historical figure and a sports personality. The children heard about why they were famous, the contributions they had made to their specific area, their impact upon the world and also about adversities they may have had to overcome in order to become successful.


After the voting was complete, all four houses voted for the sports personality they had heard about. And the bears were named as follows:


Hobson – Serena (Williams – Tennis player)
Malcomson – Mo (Farah – Athlete)
Osmond – Simone – (Biles – Gymnast)
Searle – Jesse (Owens – Athlete)


When the children returned into school after the lockdown period of home learning, the House Bears were the first ones there to welcome the children back into school.


Finally as the children broke up for Easter last week, the bears were seen wearing bunny ears and hearing all about Easter from the Easter Bunny!
