Southam College and Bilton School students have visited Leamington Night shelter as part of global Virtues week. We had a guided tour and volunteered our services to the local homeless community
In November 2014, the UK Government published advice for the promotion of Global Virtues in schools. The government set out a definition of Global Virtues comprising of the following:
- The rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
As an outstanding school, we at Stowe Valley Multi Academy, actively seek to promote these virtues within an atmosphere of respect, tolerance and the celebration of difference.
As part of our on going promotion of these virtues both Southam College and Bilton School have joined forces to celebrate these local, national and international virtues. As part of our Global Virtues week, we held a number of events across both schools, including Bhangra dancing, food tasting, food bank visits and students visited a local homeless shelter.
As part of Global Virtues Week, Southam College's Technology department held a pineapple upside-down workshop. Students had a great time baking and tasting the cakes
As part of Global Virtues Week, Year 5 and Year 6 students from Southam Primary school joined us for an African clay pot workshop. Students had to design their pot first with a traditional African repeating pattern and then used clay and clay tools to roll, mould and carve their pot into its final shape. We had a lot of fun doing this (and got a little messy in the process!)
Southam College held their Global Virtues fair today, with stalls from Amnesty International and The Samaritans. Students were able to have a hot drink and chat and find out more information with regards to these two international charities.
Amnesty International were even supported by Richard Dickson, councillor for Kenilworth.
