Theme of the week is: challenging stereotypes
FCC also offers a range of activities during after-school hours and summer holidays for all members of the community, parents and children to attend. Throughout the year these have included Art and Craft workshops focusing on clay, Christmas and Easter Crafts, very successful Robot Challenge Days and an extensive package of Summer Holiday Activities taking place throughout the community over much of the summer break – including cooking classes for various abilities, HipHop, Breakdancing and various sports courses.
FCC works closely with many Community Groups:
The Art Department at FCC has previously done a project in association with the Friends of the Folly which was displayed during the town’s Art Festival. We hope to produce a Folly Booklet featuring some of the student’s work that will be available next Summer.
We are delighted to have participated each year in the natiional cookery competition run by the Rotary Club. Our local Rotary Club in Faringdon kindly provide prizes for the event held at FCC and the winner goes through to the regional stage.
