X-Factor visitors!

New Kings Order are a band made up of an original member and two other X factor contestants.

A fabulous afternoon for Year 8 students yesterday, where the students really engaged, had fun and an received some e-safety awareness.  The lads Cardan, Corey and Brad were down to earth, cool and delivered a powerful message about online safety, bullying and the impact of mental health issues.

The students were buzzing and danced their socks off!

Students learn about Dementia

Adam Crispin from Dementia Friends with some of our students.

Adam joined us for two assemblies this week and enlightened our students about dementia.

He added  ‘Thank you for inviting me, I hope the children took something from it. It’s great to know that 80% of the younger community of South Molton now has at least a basic understanding of what is now the most frequent cause of death in the UK. If you do have any children asking for more advice then I would be happy to signpost them to the most appropriate place for their need.’

Praise for our students

Well done lads!

It was great to receive a message from the local police force praising our pupils for the support they offered at a recent incident near the school. The lads stepped in to prevent a potential accident by helping an officer remove dangerous debris from the road.

Good work Will, Connor and Leo. We are very proud of you.

South Molton Girls Rugby

South Molton RFC represented by our year 9’s had their first home game on Sunday. Although they didn’t win they all played a great game and are progressing so well. They will be the first u15’s girls team to play in the Devon Cup for the club.

The team would like to thank everyone who turned up to give them support. Their next game is this Sunday, 30 Sept.

Girls wishing to find out what it’s all about can come along on a Tuesday night and more details can be found on SM RFC Facebook page.

The Red Box Project

 

SMCC is proud to be one of the few schools in North Devon that is participating in The Red Box Project.

This is a UK wide initiative run by local volunteers. The aim is to ensure that no young person misses school or suffers embarrassment because they have their period.

Leaflets will be available from Mrs Skinner in SMCC Nurture HUB.

The Red Box can be found in HOH Room 212
