Knowing what’s right doesn’t mean much unless you DO what’s right
Taste your words before you spite them out
We, the Head Students are excited to announce a new approach to anti-bullying week this year. We have created a week that will surround the topics of sexism, racism and homophobia, and take a more direct and united approach to tackling bullying. Within this week we aim to educate the lower school on why bullying is not tolerated, but more specifically the history behind the aforementioned subsections of bullying and put a stress on why we shouldn’t use targeted, hateful words. The Year 12 prefect team are running a presentation session in years 7-9, which will be an educational session on why certain derogatory slurs are not used, and the history behind them. This is because we believe that educating students as to why these words are hurtful is a lot more efficient at tackling targeted bullying than punishment.
Wednesday evening saw the year 11 football team play their second league game and the first in the shadows of the new Southam College building!
In a rematch from the district shield final last year, Kineton were the opposition. The game was a very close affair with very few clear cut chances. The best chance of the first half fell to Harry who was unlucky with his glancing header striking the inside of the post.
The second half continued in the same fashion but Southam did break the deadlock when Harry latched on to a through ball rounded the keeper, saw his effort cleared off the line and then poking home the rebound. Unfortunately Southam couldn’t hold on to the lead and conceded with about 6 minutes left to a free header from inside the box. Despite their best efforts the lads couldn’t find a winner. Overall, a fair result and the boys remain unbeaten this season. Full time score 1-1.
Man of the match- Leo. A tremendous defensive display.
Well done gents, Mr Turton.
Today we are starting our ‘resource a day’ to help provide you with a range of revision resources ahead of the upcoming PPEs. In lessons this week you will receive printed revision guides for the Crime and Punishment unit, so to add to this today’s resources focus on the site study question for this exam (Pentonville Prison). Use these along with the YouTube videos to make sure you are confident in how to approach these questions on the exam (Q6a & 6b). Happy History revision!
GCSE PE Revision session Monday 7th November. Everyone welcome from both GCSE groups. The focus will be practising exam technique in preparation for the PPEs.
We have PE intervention sessions every THURSDAY night after school in SP2 to support students with GCSE PE, sports science, or sports studies coursework. All students are welcome.
