Richmond Hill High School junior Cindy Lochan’s watercolor painting, right, was selected by the Queens Borough Student Arts Festival to be exhibited by the Dept. of Education in the Queens Museum on May 7. The festival is sponsored by Chancellor Carranza and the NYCDOE and will feature a visual arts exhibition and performances by students from several schools. Principal Neil Ganesh congratulated art teacher Ms. Sheridan for spending her time and effort to guide Cindy Lochan. A photo of Ms. Lochan’s watercolor is shown.

Richmond Hill High School has its own YouTube channel called the Lions TV. The students create a monthly episode reporting on the positive things going on in the school. The cameraman is Adriall Sunnie.

More then 25 Leadership students from Richmond Hill High School visited Manhattan to see the Broadway play “Aladdin.”  This learning experience took place because of all the volunteer hard work the students do for their school all year long. Tickets are provided to high schools  by the Theater Development Fund as cultural enrichment.

The Leadership students of RHHS, under the guidance of Coordinator of Student Affairs Ms. Doobay, raised money for leukemia and lymphoma, organized three blood drives this year, held pep rallies, a Breast Cancer Walk and a talent show. They volunteered at Open School Nights and sold flowers on Valentine’s Day to raise funds for student activities, by spreading happiness, school spirit and love.

During the recent Chancellor’s Conference Day eleven teachers collaborated on creating a mural, right, as a team-building activity. With the inspiration of fine arts teacher Ms. Marti-Munoz, the staff was encouraged to create a mural to improve workplace atmosphere, to help the team members to understand each other better.
