Old Latins – welcome back! The general consensus is that your time at the Latin is something that stays with you for life – hopefully in a good way! In recent years we have worked hard to let you know that you will always be part of the school community, that you are welcome to visit anytime, and that we would love you to share your skills and experiences with today’s students. This is more true now than ever: this vision needs EVERYONE who has walked the hallways of RLS to play their part. Here’s what you can do:
Familiarise yourself with the 600 Campaign; take a good look around this website and check back for latest developments
Decide how you can help…
Speak to others about the campaign. Share the vision
Introduce RLS to people you think might be able to help
Think about how the organisations you are part of might get involved
Like our facebook page, connect to the 600 Campaign group on LinkedIn, and follow us on Twitter
Volunteer your time or skills to help the campaign effort
Fundraise! Organise an event, take part in a sponsored challenge, encourage your family to get involved
Donate if you can…
If you would like to make a donation to your old school, we would be thrilled – just follow the link for further details, and do get in touch if you have any questions.
If you would like any further information or want to discuss how you might like to get involved, please don’t hesitate to Contact Us – we’d love to hear from you!
Who do we know? And who do they know?
The success of a campaign of this size depends on how wide we can cast our net. Everyone can play their part in helping us to deliver our vision – simply by talking to others about our ambitious goals and introducing us to people who might be able to help.
Help us to network
We can supply campaign business cards for you to distribute or display in your place of work – just contact us to request some.
You can join our RLS 600 Campaign group on linkedin, and introduce others to the group too. Like our Facebook page, and spread the word that way.
If you are an Old Latin, get in contact with your former classmates and encourage them to join you in paying us a visit – and sign up for our alumni magazine, Latin Life, by emailing email@example.com
The school continues to be proud of its unique heritage, and we firmly believe that it is vital to give the students of today the chance to be inspired by their predecessors. We are fortunate to have many scientists, technologists and innovators amongst our Alumni, and will ensure that the expertise of former students is embedded within the Discovery Centre through our ‘Alumni Lab’, which celebrates alumni achievements and connects today’s students with those from previous generations.
If you would like to visit the Alumni Lab to give a talk to students on a science subject or to share your career story, please contact us!
We are still accepting donations towards the Alumni Lab; if you would like to know more, please read our Alumni Lab booklet which includes a donation form. If you are interested in becoming a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum Sponsor of the Alumni Lab, you can find further details in our Sponsorship Proposal.
“We would like to invite Old Latins to join us in funding a lab purely via our contributions. Whether you can donate £10 or £10,000, by joining together we can make a big commitment to the Discovery Centre and to the next generation of scientists and innovators at RLS.” Denise Griffiths (1980), Julian Thomas (1986) & Jade Thomas (1992)
