It was fantastic to see so many smiling faces at the Freshers’ Fair this week and our new campus at Elwick Road provided the perfect backdrop to a day of fun!
There were lots of organisations from within the community giving important information to our students, including:
• Ashford Leisure Trust, who held a competition to see who could hold dumbbells at shoulder height for the longest, as well as promoting sports and healthy living.
• Ashford Borough Council, who were promoting opportunities in Ashford for young people to get involved in the community.
• Kent Fire and Rescue Services, who were promoting safe driving.
• Our own Learning Resource Centre who provided information about the range of books they have to help students with their studies.
• Love Ashford, who ran a competition offering the opportunity for our students to win £50 worth of shopping vouchers.
• Ashford Volunteering Centre, who were promoting volunteering opportunities within the community and how it can help our students.
• Plus many more!
Lots of fun was had by all participating in the activities, which included inflatable basketball hoops, the opportunity to pose for a selfie with props with our social media frames, making their own smoothie on the smoothie bike and having a go at African drumming!
We were very proud of our music technology students showcasing some of the software they use - and our beauty students pampering others with manicures!
We’re looking forward to seeing you all progress through your studies! Have a look to see if you can spot yourselves below…
