The Students’ Union decided to theme January as Motivation month. For this we handed out motivational quotes around the college, to students, with the aim to make their day better!
We have also spoken a little about New Year’s Resolutions and if students were to set a resolution for the college what would it be? What are your new year’s resolutions? Comment your answers below!
Much of January for me was delivering tutorials across the college, my aim was to try and reach those I don’t get to see as much. I spoke about our new website ‘Change It’ , our Takeover week in Feb, Course Reps, the new Activities program and finally the Students’ Union elections. Already our time as SU officers is nearly up so we are recruiting for new students to take our place.
The SU team have been really busy this month, Tesh and Aaron have started up 5 aside football on Wednesdays 4.30-5.30 at Bath Sports centre. Paul has been creating more videos for the YouTube page. James has been working towards a Bath College talent show and lastly Katie has been prepping for an online mentoring service. To top it off the team made a decision of our RAG (Raise and Give) charity this year. We are happy to announce that we will be supporting Time Is Precious for a second year running.
Hayley and I worked very closely with Childcare level 1 students in their assignment to make a positive impact on our community. Each group set up a fundraising event for Time is Precious. We went on a 14 mile walk from SVC campus to CCC campus. Other groups dressed up as Micky and Mini Mouse and went around town collecting money. The other groups held cake and sweet sales. They raised an amazing £650!!!
The Participation Team have worked really hard on the 8ft by 12ft post it wall. This is where we asked students to write positive quotes on post it notes. It was amazing. They also did an activity called float your hopes where they got helium balloons and got students to write their hopes on a balloon and let it go.
Finally Question of the month results show that out of all the services at college the Students’ Union are known by more students!!! Go Team 16/17. They have been working so hard and deserve this recognition. I am looking forward to the final months in the Students’ Union!
