Year 12 had a fantastic morning exploring ethical thinking as part of our whole school approach to Philosophy and Ethics. Students had the opportunity to hear from five different organisations including:
Myton Hospice (Medical Ethics)
Alan Cutler (Humanist UK)
Jane Sault (Pro-Choice Advocate)
Harkirat Singh (Sikh Education Service)
It was great to see students engaging with ethical thinking from a medical ethics viewpoint, including end of life care to Sikh thought and being.
Well done to Year 12!
What a joy it was to work with such intelligent, thoughtful, and open-minded young people today. Thanks for giving me the opportunity! (Humanist UK)
Last night our Year 13 students enjoyed a stylish celebration at Hellidon Lakes Hotel. It was extremely well organised by our Head Students Ten, Joe and the prom committee, well done for all of your hard work. It was a wonderful evening and a fitting way to celebrate the end of seven years as a student at Southam College. We hope you look back on these days with sentimentality in years to come.
We look forward to celebrating with you again on A Level results day, Thursday 18th August. All the best for the future.
The Year 12 focus for Diversity Week is intersectionality. Following your tutor activity, some of you were really interested to find out more and James has put together this great fact file from his research.
In addition to this, here is an interesting article about how intersectionality can influence people’s experiences – in this case, the decision to ‘come out’.
This is thoughtfully written and recognises the differences in people’s experiences and views, so we encourage you to read to the end so you can understand the complexities of this. In order to gain a wider understanding of other stories, we would also suggest you read ‘A Dutiful Boy’ by Mohsin Zaidi and ‘Naturally Tan’ by Tan France, both of which are available in our school library.
