  • 16-12-2014 - Victoria and Albert Museum London - Post 16

    The Victoria and Albert museum in London proved to be an excellent venue for our recent post 16 Art and design study visit. Students invited on the trip were those studying art and photography courses. The venue was specifically chosen in order to help them develop their current units of study. The students were incredibly fortunate to secure places to view two major shows. The shows consisted of a retrospective of the work of Horst, one of the 20th century’s master photographers and an exhibition about Britain’s best-loved landscape painter, Constable.

    Students were able to engage with key primary source material throughout the shows and museum, enabling them to understand the creative processes and techniques used to create specific artworks. Student’s behaviour was impeccable and the trip proved to be a success with both students and staff.

  • 10-12-2014 - SCC Raise Over 300 for Children In Need

    On Friday 14th November, Sittingbourne Community College raised a spectacular £308.89 for ‘Children in Need’ by engaging in various fun-based activities.This success comes on top of the good news that, since the beginning of term, SCC have raised the fantastic figure of £1387.71 for Demelza House.This year the students and staff at Sittingbourne Community College decided to raise funds for such a worthy cause, and turn fundraising into a fun day.The library sold Pudsey Bear badges, and encouraged students to write a short story about Pudsey’s missing eye, paying a donation to take part.

    The catering staff organised a bake sale during break time, for which the cakes were supplied not only by the kitchen but also members of staff. From this came some gorgeous cakes, with some decorated to look like Pudsey Bear.

    During lunchtime some staff ran a photo booth where students could pose with Pudsey ears, glasses and Pudsey hats either on their own or with friends. This was all at a small fee, with the promise of a truly amazing photograph for their keeps.

    Kate Barry, Charity Coordinator for SCC, spoke of the day’s success: “It was definitely felt that 'the highlight was to see our school mentioned on the bottom page of the BBC 1 Children in Need programme South East section at approximately 8.30 pm on the evening stating our achievements, students then tweeted on twitter with excitement having seen their school mentioned'.

    SCC Assistant Head, Sarah Green, spoke of what the success of the day meant for the school: “Days like this, where pupils and staff collaborate to help each other for such a wonderful cause as Children In Need is what SCC is all about. We are all extremely proud of what we have accomplished and are looking forward to our future charity-projects”.

  • 19-11-2014 - Art trip to TATE

    On the 13th of November forty five year 8 students travelled to the TATE modern art gallery in London with the Art department. The aim of the trip was to experience and collate information for the Bronze arts award, which students have been researching and creating work for as part of their homework tasks. To achieve a Bronze arts award, which allows you to gain a Level 1 national qualification, young people are required to take part in an arts activity they enjoy, go to an arts event, research their arts inspiration and share their skills with others.

    Students explored the gallery collections such as surrealism, cubism, abstract art, and a wide range of iconic artists work. Students recorded information about the work within the gallery, created a range of sketches of their favourite works of art as well as photographing their experience throughout the day. Students will use all the information they have gathered towards achieving their Arts award. There was plenty of entertainment throughout the journey with rendition of songs from Frozen and chart music. It was a very successful trip with outstanding behaviour and enthusiasm shown by students, a trip the Art department hope to continue in the future.
