A fantastic start to the Year 10 Ski Trip with the annual trip to the snowdome.
There were a few nerves but everyone quickly got their ski legs. The beginners and intermediates showed excellent progress and the advanced group were flying down the slope and attacking the jump! All pupils were a real credit to the school and supported each other throughout.
We are all very excited about the Ski Trip in 4 weeks!
Southam College travelled to Aylesford School, with a KS3 and KS4 team, in a Level 2 knockout match with the winner to progress through to represent Central Warwickshire at the County Games.
The older team consisting of Ben Hall, Dom Priest, Seb Priest, Alex Costa and Jack King all won games that saw them victorious. Although Aylesford’s number one seed remained unbeaten Southam had the stronger team which was shown as they all rallied through the lower order.
However the younger team had a tougher time competing against an experienced Aylesford squad. Sarah Costa managed to get the only wins for the side but despite some close games Evan Gillingham, Ethan Male and Joe Cummings couldn’t quite win 2 sets to secure the match.
Owen De Souza and Dan Voice also competed against an Aylesford select managing to achieve a couple of wins.
The KS4 team will now go forward to the County Games at the beginning of February.
Friday afternoon former Southam College student Keith Bromwich delivered a careers talk on how to become a Paramedic to interested Year 10 and Year 11 students.
Keith is currently working as a Parmedic Science lecturer at Oxford Brookes University. Keith gave our students a presentation on what it is like to be a Paramedic. He informed our students of the different subjects and grades required by universities, how volunteering and work experience placements can enhance the students application. At the end of the session students were able to use a simulator to help a patient who was having a heart attack.
