The Blend. A Dynamic, Dramatic and Original Dance Show

In mid March students studying dance delivered a fantastic show presenting three evenings of wonderfully entertaining and engaging dance choreographed by the dancers.  The brilliant dancing was enhanced by superb lighting and music to a professional standard.  

A superb achievement for all involved.

See LINX magazine at the end of term for pull out double page picture feature on the show

The college has received awards from Comic Relief for the cash it raises on Red Nose Day.  Students were in mufti and many staff were in college uniform - of sorts! Students and staff had organised activities and one was karaoke in Hall 2 which was great fun.

A good day was had by all and whilst the academic work continued many hundreds of pounds were raised (see above)  for this worthy charity.

Red Nose and Mufti Day for Students, Staff- and Dogs!

Nearly all the money has been counted and we have raised Over £2500 for Comic Relief!!!

A selection of girls have recently taken part in cricket sessions learning to become young leaders to primary students. The group spent a day with coaches from Devon Cricket and the ECB funded ‘Chance to Shine’ to learn new drills, mini games and how to deliver training sessions.

All the girls passed the course and will now deliver sessions in the summer to Primary schools. Congratulations to the girls involved. Well done!

Girls Qualify to Train Primary Students Cricket Skills

The Religion Department has held another successful ‘Religion and Science’ conference. Year 8 students have been studying the relationship between religion and science. In particular they have focused on the ethical issues surrounding fertility treatment.

At the conference students were given the opportunity to explore these issues in more depth from different religious and non religious points of view. Guest speakers were invited into the college to talk about their own beliefs and opinions. They represented the Roman Catholic, Church of England, Buddhist, Humanist and scientific points of view.

Students then worked in small groups for a workshop followed by the the opportunity to ask the speakers their own questions.

A big thank you to all the guests involved and the student panel, who asked some very testing questions of the panel.

Year 8 Students Explore Religious and Scientific Views

Asdan Students organised the opportunity to throw wet sponges at staff to raise money for Bright Futures. Mr Alexander, Mr Turner, Mr Phare, Miss Thomas and Mrs Hunter put their dignity on the line and took a sponge - or sponges -for charity. To be more exact, over 205 wet sponges were thrown at them in total which raised a splendid £41.  I suspect the poor staff involved did not feel splendid afterwards although Mr Alexander did receive a spontaneous round of applause from the large group of spectating students. Hats off to all the staff who took part!

A great event that demonstrated that a small sacrifice can mean you can raise money to support those less fortunate than yourself.

Hats Off to Mr Alexander & Staff: Splatted for Charity!
