Echo Eternal Holocaust campaign day 2022

Thank you to all departments who supported our Echo Eternal Holocaust campaign day 2022.

Visiting lessons today it was wonderful to see students engaged in discussions from making pledges for the future, exploring scientific investigation to racism and In Food Technology exploring the our survivors testimony’s culture through the recipe of Goulash. It was a thought provoking day which students led well and asked thought provoking questions. 

Thank you to Southam College’s Philosophy and Ethics students for creating pledges as part of our Echo Eternal Holocaust campaign day. Students learnt of our assigned Holocaust survivors experience and created pledges in response to this.

The girls progress in the National Cup! 

On Thursday afternoon the u13 girls team travelled to rural Derbyshire to play in the last 32 of the National Cup against De Ferrers School. 

The game was played in bright sunshine on a boggy pitch but that didn’t deter the girls. The girls battled hard and great defending from Rosa, Edith and Sharon kept the score at 0-0. There were very few chances created in the first half but there were large passages of good football played by the determined Evie, Tammy, Eva and Connie with Grace working hard up front. 0-0 at half time. 

The second half was much more open and both teams created chances. A fantastic double save from Frankie kept the score at 0-0. Southam were having to defend a lot in the second half with Bella and Bethany working really well on the right hand side. Southam left it late to grab a goal. A fantastic run from Bella allowed Eva to play a through ball to Evie who was composed and shot into the bottom corner to give Southam a 1-0 lead. Southam then defended superbly well for the last 4 minutes and held on for a 1-0 win. 

Players of the match: 

Frankie- a tremendous performance with some outstanding saves and great distribution. 

Sharon- tough tackling and superb defending for the whole game! 

Ladies, I am so so proud of your performance and reaching the last 16 of the National cup without conceding a goal!!

This is a fantastic achievement to get this far from 456 teams entering!
