Year 7 Students Tackle Engineering Problem
After an introductory talk and demonstration by Rob Hoe and his colleagues from Jacobs Engineering, year 7 students were tasked with making a model bridge which was structurally strong enough to hold the weight of a bottle of liquid.
Many of the bridges were just able to hold up the weight but there was one clear winner identified by the experts because of the manner in which it had been designed and built. The students had employed some of the engineering principles outlined in the earlier talk and had created a strong structure from paper! Our thanks to Rob and his colleagues from Jacobs Engineering for giving up their time to deliver this engaging and instructive session.

Post 16 A2 sport students had a successful trip to Exeter University to work with
Bert Bond. They were lucky enough to use the sports science labs to study personal
metabolism using gas analysis software, energy systems and fuel use.
This was a fantastic trip during which the students were able to learn in a practical environment using extremely specialist equipment.

Year Eight Christmas Song Competition
Friday 12th December saw the return of the annual Year 8 Christmas Song Competition. All the songs heard in the final had previously won their class competitions so everyone was already a winner! Everyone had a brilliant finals day and after a lot of decision making, judges Mr. Lomas, Mrs. Duval-Steer, Mrs. Thorn and Mrs. Millman chose the winning song which was performed again by the competition winners; Joe Wibberley, Sam Wheeler, Harry Wright, Ryan Vertigan and Ryan Wright.
Thanks to Mr.Stock and the Music Department for organising such a fantastic day and well done to everyone who took part.
Cajon Drum Maker Impresses Technology Staff
Heather Upton made her friend a Cajon drum out of plywood based on a design she found on the internet. She told her technology teacher about how she had made it at home who asked if Heather would bring it in to College. When Heather brought the drum in to show Mrs Edwardson and Mr Drake, Head of Technology, they were very impressed by both Heather’s initiative and skill.
The cajón is the most widely used Afro-Peruvian musical instrument since the late 18th century. Slaves of African origin who were taken to the Americas are considered to be the source of the original cajón drum. Currently, the instrument is common in musical performance throughout the Americas and Spain. It has also been popularised by artistes such as Robert Plant and others who have produced music reflecting Southern American States Cajon music.
On Friday 12th December a team of Chemists from Exmouth Community College pitted their skills and knowledge against other South West Teams, in the Royal Society of Chemistry “Top of the Bench” competition. This prestigious event was held at University of Exeter’s world class Biochemistry teaching laboratory. The team was comprised of Year 9 students Alice Rose-Wright and Pete Lockwood, Jacob Congreve from Year 10 and Imogen Hanford from Year 11, and were prepared and accompanied by Mr Williamson. The competitors found their practical skills challenged when testing the value for money of everyday indigestion remedies via a titration, and identifying unknown substances using test tube analysis. Finally, the team were tested on their theoretical knowledge of Chemistry and the elements. The final scores revealed that the team finished in a well deserved fourth place, out of strong field of school teams from across the South West of England.
