Hiya! Guess what?! …
There’s only 9 days till Christmas!! 🙂
Anyway I thought I’d give you an update of some of the things that have been going on over the last few weeks –
Course rep training
Over 180 course reps have now been trained which is amazing! Thank you all for attending the training sessions that I have put on, the feedback that I have been getting is amazing and I can already tell that you are all going to be great course reps this year! If you haven’t been to a training session yet hurry! I will be putting more on in the New Year!
Children in Need
Thank you to all those who helped out this year for Children in Need and thank you for all your donations! We raised a terrific £1515.82! I have to say I loved having onesie day! Check out Vibes coverage of the day here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bikY-LsjNIg
International day of persons with disabilities
On the 5th of December we celebrated the International Day of Persons with disabilities, it was a great day which helped to promote an understanding of people with disability and encourage support for their dignity, rights and well-being.
We had lots going on throughout the day. One of the main things we did was to build a wall of tags with information on of what people can and cannot do, our focus being that although everyone may not be able to do something that does not mean that they do not have their own talents.
Em-J and I also took a tour around campus on the bikes to see just how accessible the campus really is, our tour was very insightful. Simple tasks such as getting through doors, getting in lifts, getting up a hill and even getting over a bump in the pavement can be difficult tasks.
Check out the videos of our tour –
This day was very successful and I hope that it does help change people perceptions!
End of term Christmas special
IT’S NEARLY CHRISTMAS! Our end of term Christmas Special will be on Wednesday the 18th! Pre-tickets £2 then £3 on the door after 10. See you all there!
I’ve just realised how much I have actually typed so I’ll leave it there! Have a great Christmas everyone and a Happy New Year!! xxx
