Live French Theatre Performance – Onatti Productions

We were delighted to welcome back Onatti Productions to Southam College on Friday, with a live performance of Mon père ne me comprend pas, specially for French students in Years 8 to 13. After studying the play in class last week, students enjoyed watching Hélène, and her eccentric family and friends, as some magical wishes on her 16th Birthday led to some hilarious disasters.  

Well done to all our students for engaging so well with the play, and particularly to Year 11 for interacting so well with the actors afterwards in a question and answer session – we really hope you enjoyed the experience! We would also like to say a massive merci beaucoup to the actors from the Onatti team for delivering such an immersive, inventive French session. It was such a treat to see live performances again! 

We are looking forward to welcoming Onatti Productions back later this year with the German play Horoskop and the Spanish play En el campamento.

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!
