As part of this, we are honouring refugees around the globe for World Refugee Day. Year 7 have been learning about refugees in tutor time and in Geography they have learnt about migration, forced migration and refugees. This is some of the work they have done about Yusra Mardini, a refugee who competed with the Olympic Refugee Team. Well done Year 7!
As part of Diversity Week, we recommend viewing ‘Hope Notes’ this week on Youtube for World Refugee Day.
Also, visit https://whatwouldyoubring.com to discover refugee stories, told through the lens of the objects they brought with them.
Tuesday evening saw the Year 7 Rounders team take on their very first matches in a Triangular Tournament against North Leamington and Campion. Up first were North Leamington School, with Southam fielding first. The team produced a great performance with Megan L producing some brilliant fast bowls and Erin and Clara catching 3 batters outs in the first innings. Jenna, Rosie, Scarlett and Isabella worked well together as deep fielders displaying some great teamwork getting the ball back to the bases effectively. Then it was time for Southam to bat. Some big hits from Erin, Bethany, and Megan L and a great backhand from Jenna helped the team to score some excellent full rounders. The first match’s score line was very tight with Southam scoring 4 rounders, but unfortunately North Leamington took the win with 5 rounders.
Player of the match: Jenna.
The second match saw Southam take on Campion School, fielding first once again. Some great tactical awareness and decision making from Laynie as Backstop and Katie, Lily, Bethany and Clara on the bases helped to keep Campion’s batting score low only allowing them to score 2 rounders. It was then time for Southam to bat and with some great efforts from Lily, Erin and Rosie Southam were able to score 5 rounders within the innings and winning the second game.
Player of the match: Lily
Overall, the team played fantastically in their first two matches, demonstrating great knowledge of both the rules and tactics of the game as well as some outstanding teamwork and decision making.
Well Done Girls! A great first result!

Dance Production will be returning to the stage in December 2022, and we want to see “Everybody dance!”
We need your help to make it bigger and better than ever before. Get your choreography hats on and create a routine that is unique, polished and performed to the best of your ability ready for the auditions in October.
We’re looking for variety; from solos to groups and styles from ballet to acro.
All ages are welcome to audition. GCSE PE students in year 9/10 who would be assessed in dance will be expected to enter a piece as this is a fantastic opportunity to be assessed and filmed on stage.
If any key stage 4 or 5 students are interested in supporting and choreographing a routine for younger students please email Mrs Turton directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) or speak to Mrs Mellor.

Congratulations to Dylan M., Emilio F. & Jake S. who competed for Southam College at the Warwickshire Schools Combined Events Athletics Championships at Nuneaton today.
In conditions that weren’t always reminiscent of a sunny Athletics event, having to temporarily abandon the Long Jump event in monsoon style rain, all 3 boys competed fantastically in their 4 events (80m, Long Jump, Shot Putt & 600m). Their final individual positions were 14th , 8th & 6th , and as a team came 2nd in the Warwickshire. Well done to all 3 and were are looking forward to them competing at future schools events coming soon!
