Amazing day skiing at Zell! Students skiing brilliantly, all are making progress with their skills. Both beginner groups are developing their technique on the slopes, the intermediates tackled a difficult red and the advanced have been challenged by the instructor with some mogul techniques.

Perfect conditions for today’s lessons! All groups are making huge progress. Instructors have commented on how brilliant the students are being and are impressed with their willingness to learn!
Advanced had a carving clinic, intermediates learnt how to ski in a line, beginner 2 practised their turns and beginner 1 mastered a section of a red run!!
Great day all round.

The year 10 netball team last night headed to Princethorpe for a friendly match. The team had a tough match with Princethorpe players dominating some of the play, however a huge team effort meant Southam never gave up!! Some amazing shooting from Madi Smith and Cara Andrews with the support of Carmen Ellis Greenway, Cerys James and Kacie Morby meant that the team worked well together working the ball through the court. Lucy Parker, Alice Dillon and Ruby Cole had a tough time in defence but worked together to pressure the Princethorpe attack. The whole team kept their heads up throughout and although lost overall, there were some positives to take away! Looking forward to the next few games before they head to PGL on their Netball Trip.
