STUDENT LANYARDS and ID CARDS - IMPORTANT REMINDER

Student News Feed - 3 July, 2018 - 13:13
by Darren Della Maestra.  

A PLEASANT REMINDER:

There are a large number of students who aren't wearing their lanyards in class and out of class.  Obviously in class for safety reasons it may not be possible to wear lanyards but when you leave class you must put them back on.  You shouldn't be walking around college with these in your bag, pockets or wallet - WEAR IT!

We can't let this slip - sunny weather or not.  I don't like throwing policy out there but it is college policy.

Thank you

The Corridor outside rooms 61 - 67 is closed to students and staff for the duration of the summer exams. It will reopen on Wednesday 27th June. These rooms and spaces are used daily for exams and we have had a lots of incidents recently where people have moved the barriers and cut through the closed off section.

Many thanks for your co-operation.
