Students honoured for projects in community
10:10am Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
STUDENTS who worked on community projects over the last 12 months have had their endeavours recognised at Swindon College’s Community Awards Ceremony.
Students, staff, guests and representatives from each project – including The Prospect £10 Challenge, renovating the Sea Scout Hut, plumbing students updating the resource cafe and raising money for charities including Oxfam and Affected By Cancer – all celebrated the hard work and commitment of the people involved.
Each group of students went on stage to collect their certificates from Jacqueline Grubb, director of curriculum, at the well-attended event, after Swindon’s mayor, Nick Martin, did a presentation for each project.
Employers and tutors spoke about the work carried out. The college won positive feed-back from project representatives, highlighting the professionalism and high standards of the work carried out by the students.
Jacqueline said: “We are passionate, at Swindon College, about encouraging people to reach their full potential and the importance of serving our community.
“This celebration was a fantastic way to encapsulate what the college is about, in serving our community and our mission of creating the skills of tomorrow, today.
“We do this by providing excellence in training and support for our communities.”
If you have any ideas or suggestions for new projects that students could undertake to benefit the community, contact Jackie by email via JacquelineGrubb@swindon-college.ac.uk.
