On Friday 10th March the year 10 netball team went across to Lidington for the annual PGL Netball Tournament. On arrival the girls had a chill out evening followed by a mini netball carousal of activities.
On Saturday morning the real netball began, starting against a strong team that the girls remembered from last year, Haygrove yr 10. It was a tough match from start to finish and not the best match to start the tournament with but the girl’s battled their way to a 7-7 draw. Excellent start to the competition by the girls and particularly Clarice Ellis -Greenway. The girls took their experience from this match into the second against Cowsbridge Comprehensive Yr10, this match saw Alice Coles feed the ball extremely well allowing Southam to pull ahead. Unfortunately we still had to play Cowsbridge Comprehensive yr 11 team to play and we knew from previous results that these would be a strong team. The girl’s played well but unforced errors snuck into the game and handed Cowsbridge the victory. The final match of the day came against Queen’s School yr 10 team; the girls came together extremely well linking play to show our strongest combination. The Southam girl’s finished the day in 3rd place at this stage.
In the afternoon the girls had an opportunity to chill out and make use of the facilities at PGL such as the zip wire, aeroball and archery. A small competition on aeroball was needed to ensure Miss Warman could prove she had improved from last year’s terrible performance – the team of Miss Warman and Miss Evans proved themselves by having victories over Nomie and Amy; Marie and Jodie S and Jodie R and Lydia. In the evening the majority of the girls participated in the photo challenge that involved the girls roaming the site and taking photos around the ground.
The final day saw Southam have 2 more group matches against some tough teams. Haygrove Yr11 were sat top after day 1 and we knew from last year these were an extremely well drilled team. Unfortunately the girls couldn’t quite break them down however Jodie Rigg and Clarice Ellis-Greenway managed to rile their oppositions but marking tightly which ended up allowing Southam to keep the goal difference down. The second match was a vital match between Queens School yr 11 (the team who knocked our yr 11 team out last year), this was a tough and physical match between the two teams seeing Jodie Stevens and Amy Carro having to contest for the ball all of the court. Eventhough the girls lost the match by battling hard the Southam team progressed to the semi-finals on goal difference. Southam had drawn to play Haygrove yr 11 team in the semi-finals – the girls battled throughout but unfortunately lost to the team who later progressed and won the final.
The girl’s played extremely well and were only beaten by year 11 teams. Thank you for conducting yourselves so well, I was extremely proud of you.

GERMAN EXCHANGE – Wednesday: Mittwoch
Today the German and English students were lucky enough to visit the Audi forum and museum in Neckarsulm. They were guided round in groups with very informative guides and had a tour of some significant parts of the Audi factory and production line. They saw the pressing room, where car parts are pressed into shape with huge machines. Following this they visited the Body workshop, where the cars’ main body frames are assembled mainly by robots which looked like something out of Transformers! After this they visited the Finishing workshop where the Audis were being put together, and where dashboards, seats, carpets, wheels, seat belts, steering wheels and finally doors were added. Following their tour they had some time to wander around the shop and museum, displaying a large variety of Audis to take pictures with. There was even a floor of show cars in which the students were able to sit, and try out the various luxury features (such as the sound systems!). Overall it was a brilliant visit and the students learnt a lot about Audi and other the production of its impressive cars.
In the evening, all students and their German partners attended our usual leaving party, to which the lovely host families brought all kinds of delicious home made German foods. This was a lovely opportunity to celebrate the week of the exchange with their partners, and the very welcoming families that they had spent their time with. We would again like to thank the host families and the German students and teachers for their hospitality and for welcoming us all again.
More updates on Wednesday about our final trip to Experimenta in Heilbronn and to keep you posted about our progress on the journey home.

All Southam College students and parents are invited to the Southam College Careers Fair taking place in the school hall from 3.30pm – 5pm on Thursday 16th March. This event enables students and parents to research information on education, employment and apprenticeship opportunities.
After a lovely sunny weekend with their Exchange host families, during which students visited Stuttgart, Heidelberg, Luwigsburg, Heilbronn, zoos, bowling and swimming pools, today we returned to Stuttgart for a tour of VfB Stuttgart football stadium. The tour was very interesting and informative and students were able to see the press room, the pitch, the stands, the changing rooms, the tunnel and the managers’ and trainers’ seats. They are now spending this afternoon experiencing some lessons with their German partners in school. Tomorrow we are visiting the Audi forum in Neckarsulm and there will be a leaving party for all the students and the German families!
Bis morgen! See you tomorrow!
