Felpham Community College raises money for unicef

On Friday 9th February, staff and students at Felpham Community College ended a busy and successful start to 2024, by hosting a non-school uniform day, raising money for unicef.

As part of UK Parliament week back in November, everyone at FCC was given the opportunity to nominate and then vote for what charities the school should support this academic year – with a wide range of local, national and international charities being chosen.

Isabelle Isitt, Student Leadership i/c Charity commented:
“Non-uniform is a fun way to end the half term and fundraise at the same time. We were redesignated as a Gold Rights Respecting School last term, an award which is run by unicef. This was a great opportunity to raise awareness of the amazing work the charity co-ordinates world-wide. We are now busy planning our charity event for next half term – an FCC Talent Show fundraising for the local community interest project ‘Save the Post Office’ in Felpham.

Felpham Community College host their own International Week!

The Languages department at Felpham Community College hosted their own ‘International Week’ from the 5th to the 9th February, celebrating language diversity and culture at FCC.  The week is organised in recognition of the United Nations International Day of Education, held on the 24th January each year.

The hugely popular ‘International Bake Off’ took place on the 7th February, with over 90 entries received. Students and staff had their own competitions, with anyone wishing to enter picking a country to research and represent through a cake/pudding. Congratulations to Eva Johnson Deacon and Sophie Lee for their amazing Brazilian cake!

On the 8th February, the ‘International Just Dance’ competition proved great fun, and throughout the week both staff and students enjoyed taking part in the ‘Guess the Teacher and Language’ competition.

Mr Cauchy-Duval, Curriculum Leader for Modern Languages, commented:
“The objective of International Week is to raise awareness of the importance of studying a language in a multi-cultural society. Both staff and students have really enjoyed taking part in all the activities we planned, especially the wide range of sweet treats we received which were incredible and completely delicious! The week has been a great success, thank you to all the staff and students who have got involved and joined in.”

Annie The Musical – A Phenomenal Success!

Well done and congratulations to the cast and crew of the Felpham Community College production of ‘Annie – The Musical.’

The sell-out show performed on the evenings of the 7th and 8th February, to a packed audience of students, staff and families of the cast.

Miss Coney, Curriculum Leader for Performing Arts, commented:
“Our students have worked really hard on the musical, we started rehearsals in our extra-curricular club back in October. We had to have a couple of last minute changes to the cast, students adapted really well and in a very mature way.  We are really proud of the effort, enthusiasm and talent they have shown. The cast and crew were from years 7 through to 10 and all put in huge amounts of their own time learning their parts. We are now looking forward to, and planning, the next events – after half term we have our dance team performing at Dance House (all year groups), and National Theatre Connections for year 10 and 11 performing arts students.

Scarlett Turvey, Year 8 Student, commented:
“I played Annie and it has been a great production to be involved with. It has been nice working with kids from other year groups and making friends, as you all have a shared interest. We were all quite nervous before the actual show, as we have been rehearsing for so long it seemed crazy that it had actually arrived! I really enjoy drama, dance and singing. I have been a part of the British Theatre for over 2 years now, I currently go up to London every Sunday for it. I have performed in numerous shows around the South, including Frozen, Shrek, Annie and Moana.
