The Business Course students have had a really busy few weeks preparing a business plan, marketing, purchasing, packaging and then selling bags of Japanese momentos to the international students. All these were aspects of the business project which raised £50 for Cancer Research. The money will be handed in to the Cancer Research shop in Canterbury at the beginning of September. Congratulations!
Japanese students from Chaucer College are making a great impression in the weekly Park Run at the University of Kent. Taking part as either runners or marshals, the students put in great performances week after week. They are even involved in making cakes or biscuits that the runners share at the end of the run. Well done to all.
As part of Chaucer College’s commitment to Continuing Professional Development, a British Dyslexia Association trainer held a very informative afternoon workshop here. The talk provoked a lively discussion with teachers coming up with lots of ideas about using some of the suggestions to improve our support of students with these kind of difficulties. A really stimulating afternoon.
International students had great creative fun this afternoon recycling materials to make fashion accessories (of a sort). Students showed the full range of their imagination as they designed all kinds of fashion accessories, with a parade in the courtyard so others could appreciate their talent!!
Last week we held our first summer fete at our largest study centre in Canterbury. We were joined by over 400 students and staff who all had a go at traditional English fete games and were entertained by live music and dance performances. Money raised will be donated to both The Kent Autistic Trust and Alzheimer’s Society.
