On Monday 31st October at Fyndoune Community College we are running a fun filled evening to celebrate the spookiest night of the school year.
This is an excellent opportunity for our Year 7 students to welcome future Year 6 students and take part in some exciting Halloween activities.
There will be games throughout the evening with prizes and the chance to show off your best dance moves.
The disco will begin at 5.30pm and will end at 7.00pm. Pupils can wear Halloween costumes if they wish, with a great prize for the best costume.
We look forward to meeting your son/daughter and enjoying an exciting evening together
51 Year 11 students had a fantastic visit to Wise Drive this week and were an absolute credit to the College. They took part in a series of workshops to learn about the dangers of driving as the 16-25 year old age group are the most vulnerable for Road Traffic Incidents. They watched videos and heard first hand about accidents, recovery missions, the effects that drugs and alcohol can have on driving. There was also a Reaction Time challenge to see who could react the quickest and press the brake pedal during an emergency stop. Well done to Lorna Carrick who won that prize. There was also a driving simulator and a Sledge that “crashed” at 7 miles per hour to show the importance of wearing your seatbelt. It was a very informative visit and one that brought home the dangers of losing your concentration when driving.
All the staff at the centre were very complimentary about our students and look forward to welcoming us again next year.
The Year 9 team were very excited about playing their County Cup quarter final against Tanfield school on Friday night. The heavy rain during the day did nothing to dampen their enthusiasm as they warmed up for an hour and a half waiting for the opposition to arrive. The game flowed from end to end with tackles a-plenty and shots flying in from all angles. Despite being down at half time, the FCC boys continued to press forward and showed great character and spirit despite eventually coming up second best to a very strong team. And so the magic of the Cup is over for another year – well done to the whole team!

On Thursday The Under 14 FCC team were drawn at home to play Belmont school in the last 16 of the Durham County Cup. This eagerly awaited clash had the Year 8 and 9 boys dizzy with excitement as they could finally show off all their skills that they had finely tuned on FIFA 17….
The game was a massively one sided affair with the FCC lads passing the ball about as if the opposition were not there. In the end a 6-0 victory was the least the team deserved. Pictured are the six goal scorers who put in a great shift. The next round is the Quarter Finals away at Tanfield which is one step closer to Wembley. Well Done.
The Durham Federation Year 6 Open Evening took place on Wednesday 14th September at Durham Community Business College at 5.30pm and Thursday 22nd September at Fyndoune Community College also at 5.30pm.
Sam Stewart (ex-Y11 DCBC) received his 100% attendance award last night. Sam is 1 of 9 out of the whole of County Durham to receive this award. Not only that, there has only ever been ten students in County Durham’s history to achieve 100% attendance from nursery to leaving secondary. An amazing achievement for an amazing student with an enviable attendance record.
