Southam College are recruiting Global Virtues and Cultural Ambassadors

As part of your role as an ambassador, you will have the opportunity to develop democracy, mutual respect and individual liberty on a whole school basis.
Are you interested in developing cultural opportunities for all year groups?
Would you like to encourage all students to show kindness, confidence, and resilience through these key virtues?
Being an ambassador is open to all year groups

First meeting to take place on Wednesday 17th March in P1 at 12:30pm
Please see Mrs Thomas for more details


For the next 5 days we are going to post a “Taking care of YOU” top tip for our young people and families. We know this is a hard time for everyone and taking care of your mind as well as your body is so important at this time. These tips might not be anything new but sometimes it is helpful to have ideas broken down and shared again. Pass them on and help others too!

Taking Care of YOU – Day one
Talk to someone about your worries. It’s ok to feel helpless, scared or anxious at this time. It’s also ok to feel fine. Everyone reacts differently. Try talking to someone you trust about how you feel. Sharing our worries helps. If you don’t feel you can talk to someone you know, click the link below for a range of fantastic helplines.

Food Preparation and Nutrition.

Last Friday was Fishy Friday for 9E Food Preparation and Nutrition.

Using whole Mackerel, Mrs James demonstrated online how to remove the head & tail, before filleting and de-boning them to use in a Warm Mackerel and Beetroot Salad. She then pan fried the fillets, in a little oil, before removing the skin and flaking it. The salad was assembled and dressed with a horseradish vinaigrette.

Very well done to Jacob and Charlie for participating in the fish masterclass.

Year 9 Drama

Year 9 Drama have been working hard on designing shoe box stages using items they can find in and around their home.

The effort they have all put in to creating these designs has been fabulous! A special mention to Ruby M, Amelia H, Kellie P and Emily S for their fantastic effort.

Well done year 9, keep up the great work!
