Year 10 Netball

Yesterday we took Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 teams over to NLS for their first netball match of the year.

The Year 10s rounded the successes off by winning 9-6 to make it a 4-0 victory to Southam College. After battling their way through a very tough game the girls came out victorious, due to some good consistent shooting from S. Smales and J. Frogley. The centre court players (N. Sparks, M. Powell, J. Jenkins and C. Thomas) managed to to make numerous turnovers to help aid the shooters by giving them as many attempts on goal as possible. The defensive pairing of E. Rae (first time at GK) and S. Kirk was solid and very disciplined and managed to ensure that NLS could not catch up the 3 goal deficit. Overall the girls came together as a team and were able to come out successful.
Well done ladies a fantastic display of netball and a truly enjoyable evening. We look forward to some very successful seasons.
Miss Warman, Miss Evans, Miss Maclachlan and Lauren

Year 10 Football

A tough result to take again at NLS. A comprehensive performance from the County Champions beating Southam 7-0. Southam lads, led well by O Challiice, did well to rappel wave after wave of attack. Naturally the back 4 had a busy evening. Outstandingly strong and well judged challenges from J Davey and saves from J Ramsden kept the score respectable. We did have chances too, several clear ones in both halves but composure and physicality left us wanting. An improved score line from last season the boys need to be reflective but pleased with their work in the game.
Learn from it and move on boys.
Mr Franzoni

Challenge Boxes

A new and exciting resource for creative thinkers:
The all-new Southam Challenge Boxes are in place in all classrooms! They are for students who complete all of their work in class to a very high-standard and have the opportunity for an extra thinking challenge. With teachers’ agreement, students can select their own challenge, complete it and hand it in to the library. These challenges will force students to use logic, reasoning and combine areas of knowledge from across departments and outside school.
Great quality efforts will be recognised through displays and the awarding of HAPs.
Ask your teacher and take a challenge today!
