VIRTUAL ALLIED HEALTHCARE WORK EXPERIENCE
Sunday 4th June 10am – 5pm
The next session for the NHS Healthcare Work Experience programme launches on Sunday 4th June! A strong record of work experience is essential for all applications to healthcare careers, including nursing, midwifery, paramedicine, occupational therapy, radiography, and many more!
The NHS interdisciplinary team has a very unique way of operating, so I encourage all students interested in healthcare or working for the NHS to join.
This week our Year 10 GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition students had a go at making meringues.
The first challenge is to successfully separate the egg yolk and white, which can be a messy process. Once the students had done this, they then whisked the egg whites to incorporate air and denature the protein in the egg white. Once the egg whites were stiff, caster sugar was gradually added, which adds sweetness and structure to hold the light, airy, whipped egg white foam. The meringues were cooked and then decorated with cream, fruit, chocolate and spun sugar to make a nicely presented sweet treat.
Five Southam college students took a trip to Pingles Stadium on Thursday afternoon to compete in the second day of the Warwickshire combined events championships.
All 5 girls represented themselves and the school brilliantly and had a blast on a sunny day as the rain held off! Esme went into day 2 leading the group and demonstrated amazing performances combined with determination to maintain the lead going into the last event where she was able to hold off a rival in the 800m event as she picked up the gold medal at the end of the day. Isabelle put in some outstanding performances, also coming 1st overall with 2864 points and smashing some PBs. Xanthe, Bethan and Tilda competed in the minor girl’s competition and did themselves proud all day with some extremely impressive performances in the 80m sprint, 800m and the long jump but also gave the shot put a real good go! Bethan just missed out on the bronze medal, but everyone contributed to the team coming 5th out of 14 teams.
