First and foremost I’d like to welcome you all to Reaseheath. I hope that you are enjoying your first term here with us.
Beginning life at college or university can be both an exciting and anxious time. Many students settle in well, however some of you who are living in at college may find that you are having difficulty adapting to your new environment. If you do find yourself missing the comforts of home, talk to your course tutor or the Student Welfare team as they will be able to offer you support.
I’m very pleased to say that you have a fantastic Student Association team in post for the year ahead. Part of their job is to work alongside Student Services to make your time at Reaseheath a positive and enjoyable experience.
I have been meeting with the Student Association each month to keep up to date with the views and opinions of our students. The ‘student voice’ is really important to us as a college. It helps us to ensure that the management decisions we make are informed and influenced by our students. Please make your views heard through your Course Representatives and members of the Student Association.
Hopefully you have made lots of new friends during Freshers’ Week and over the first term. There will be plenty of student events and activities taking place over this academic year for you to take part in, with many opportunities to meet new people.
Many of the events taking place across college will be in aid of our nominated RAG (Raising and Giving) charity. I’m very pleased that the Student Association have chosen Macmillan Cancer Support as this year’s RAG charity. Please get behind all of the activities planned over the coming year and support the College in raising funds for such a worthy cause.
The end of term is fast approaching with all students finishing for Christmas on Thursday 18th December. This year we will continue the festive tradition by celebrating the end of term with a Christmas Ball on Tuesday 16th December. This year’s theme has been decided and you won’t be disappointed!
