On Thursday we’ll be remembering back to good news events that happened at the College before we had to close our doors. Today we’re remembering back to Friday 6 March when S6C students and staff celebrated International Women’s Day with an afternoon of workshops, talks & discussions. The theme for this year was #Each4Equal encouraging everyone to play their part in striving for gender equality. Students participated in small, student-led discussion groups exploring topics such as; practical ideas for committing to gender equality, identifying positive female role models, linking gender equality to students’ academic and vocational subjects, analysing how gender equality is or isn’t reflected in favourite TV shows and films, and identifying gender stereotypes in the media and employment. This was followed by a talk from Maths teacher, Vivien White, who spoke about her career as an engineer and professional skipper and the inequality she faced in a male dominated sector. There was a real buzz about the day and it was agreed that the message of everyone striving together for equality is key because it’s unacceptable for gender to be a barrier.
This month Salisbury 6th Form College (S6C) is challenging its students to stay healthy, happy and raise some money for the NHS with a 30 day health and fitness challenge. A new challenge is uploaded each day on the Sport course’s Instagram account to keep their students and the community active during lockdown. The daily challenges include exercise, recipes and mindfulness activities and it kicks off today with a 5k walk/run challenge to raise money for the NHS. If you are looking for new things to do while the schools and colleges continue to be closed, follow @sport_s6c on Instagram to get daily suggestions of how to keep healthy and happy. Sports teacher Emma Thompson says “It’s so important for everyone to look after their physical and mental health right now so hopefully this challenge will help to give everyone some new fun ideas of things to try out each day! It would be great to see students and the local community getting involved and sharing their attempts so we can all stay connected, happy and healthy during the lockdown.”
S6C social media is posting everyday across all channels and accounts so we encourage you to follow and engage as it will also give you a sense of what staff and students are doing with learners:
