    Two one act Mozart operas in one evening - a comic opera and a comedy with music, one written when Mozart was only 12! Both are sung in the original German and Pop-Up’s witty ‘silent movie’ captions tell the stories to amuse us today. Accessible, innovative and exuberant opera, raising money for a Grade I listed building.  A great evening for the whole family…!
    This quotation taken from a lengthy review in the Daily Express about this production says it all: “Pop-Up offers non-elitist opera for all. Book yourself tickets. You will be astounded.” And previously they’ve said this about the company “nothing beats Pop-up. Hugely recommended.”
    Here’s a small selection what other critics have said about Popup Opera:
                         “Whether you love opera, or you’ve never been to one, be sure to catch this” (Time Out).
                          “Making opera enjoyable and inviting” (Opera magazine);
                          “A vivid and zippy show” (Opera Now),
                         "I honestly cannot imagine anyone, of any age or class or tastes, who would have been bored or unmoved" (The Times);
    And last, but not least, this is what a local audience member had to say - “You wouldn’t have a better evening in a London opera house – and you’d pay 5 times as much!”
    Find out more about Pop-Up Opera here: https://www.popupopera.co.uk/about-us  and on Twitter @PopupOperaUK (https://twitter.com/PopupOperaUK).

    More Than Just Opera. When people ask about what we do, their response is often ‘Sounds interesting but opera’s not really my thing’. Then we tell them they can see opera in an underground tunnel shaft, amongst old steam machines, in a barn with glass of cider in hand, and they are more willing to give it a go.

     

    Tickets, which are £15 each for the under-18s or £20 for adults, are available online at https://tinyurl.com/popupsouthmolton for card sales, and, for cash or cheques sales only, at the Amory Centre and John Walker’s Insurance in South Molton.
    Thank you for your help – in anticipation! And here’s hoping to see you on June 30th!

    On the 2nd October we will be holding our annual careers evening as part of our commitment to prepare students to make appropriate choices for when they leave school at the end of year 11. The evening will take place in the school Atrium between 6pm and 7.30pm.

    I would like to invite you to attend this information evening where you will have the opportunity to discuss career opportunities, route ways and applications with representatives from a variety of organisations, the schools careers advisor will also be available. You are welcome to bring your child with you to the event so that you will be able to discuss the range of opportunities with them..

    In addition to being able to discuss courses and applications with representatives from local colleges, at 6.30 pm there will be short presentations from Exeter College and Petroc. There will also be a briefing about apprenticeships.

    As students are so new to the school we felt parents would want a greater emphasis on how their child had coped with the transition and how they had settled in. Information about pupil’s academic progress would obviously be quite limited at present and reporting in this would be more robust later in the year.
    The format of the evening is to meet the Principal and Pastoral lead in Sports Hall 1 at 4:30pm. We then have ‘pop-up’ house rooms where your child’s Head of House will discuss with you how we support your child and what is on offer at SMCC.
    At this point you will be able to make a 10 minute private appointment with your child’s Form Tutor who will be able to give you first-hand information about your child and they will have feedback from subject teachers to share with you.
    This new approach should give you more meaningful feedback and is an exciting development in our extensive reporting schedule.
    The bullet points below outline the main things you will gain from the evening:
    • Get an overview of the Pastoral Care, Support and Guidance offered at SMCC.
    • Meet the key personnel involved in your child’s ‘Pastoral Care’.
    • Get an insight into the behaviour, rewards and consequences at SMCC.
    • Hear about the academic tracking systems we use to ensure your child makes progress.
    • Find out how your child has settled in to SMCC.
    • Discover what extra-curricular activities are available for your child.
    • What you can do to support your child at SMCC.
    If you are unable to arrive at 4:30pm prefects will be available in reception to take you to the relevant pop-up House room in order that you can join in the evening programme.
    The evening should be completed by no later than 7pm.
    Yours sincerely, Simon Avery SL

    "We’re leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges. We’re here to make sure they get the best possible mental health support and have the resilience to overcome life’s difficulties.

    The crisis in children and young people’s mental health is real and it is urgent. More children and young people than ever before are reaching out for help with their mental health. But for those who take that brave step, help is much too hard to find.

    Together, we are changing this. We’re fighting for young people’s mental health. Join our fight.”

    The Friends of SMCC are looking to organise a fundraising event on Friday 12th October in the format of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

    The evening will entail a ‘top notch’ buffet by local caterer Rhubarb & Cream followed by a light-hearted dancing competition; this will be an adult only evening as alcohol will be available and we are looking for prospective dancing couples!

    Experience is not necessary as this is intended to be a fun evening. If you would like to be involved, please email the friends@smcc.devon.sch.uk

    The Friends of South Molton Community College will be holding its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 27th November at 6.30pm in the School Library. Light refreshments will be provided.

    It has been a very successful fund raising year with Mr Potter completing his “Wheely Long Walk” this summer and our “Strictly SMCC” event in October so are now more than halfway towards our target to provide a school minibus. We are always looking for new members to join The Friends of SMCC, and all new (and regular) faces will be very welcome to the meeting. You can contact us on friends@smcc.devon.sch.uk

    With best wishes

    Library

    The Fair will run at lunchtimes in the school library for students and after school each day from 3.30pm – 4.30pm, just inside the main entrance of the school for both parents and pupils.

    The fair will include some fantastic titles, at very competitive prices, from children’s and teen fiction and non-fiction, including the most recent publications from popular authors such as David Walliams, and the latest books in the Dairy of a Wimpy Kid and the Tom Gates series. Should all copies of these and other popular titles sell out, there will be the opportunity to order them. Money raised at the book sale will also benefit the school library.

    Payment can be made by cash or cheque (payable to Devon County Council), and there is now an opportunity to pay by card using a secure phone payment service - more details will be available at the fair. If you can’t attend the book fair but don’t want your child to miss out or carry quantities of cash - don’t worry. You can pre-buy Gift Vouchers online, with 20% of the value free! These means if you pay £5, your voucher will be worth £6. Once purchased, the voucher will be emailed to you to be used as payment at the fair. To buy your voucher and get more information on the Gift Vouchers please visit www.bookfairs.scholastic.co.uk/gift-vouchers
