TV Presenter Sophie Morgan is embarking on a speaking tour of the UK to encourage young people to prepare properly for life out on the road and not make the same mistakes she did.
In 2003, Sophie was involved in a serious car crash driving friends back from an A-Level results celebration, she was sober, seat-belted and only 18 at the time.
In the crash Sophie fractured her skull, shattered her nose, cheek and jaw and broke her collarbone. She also had a spinal cord injury, which means she is paralysed from the chest down.
Last year Sophie filmed a documentary for the BBC – Licence to Kill and now together with BBC Learning and Drive iQ she will be touring the UK.
Sophie will be at the College in the main hall tomorrow delivering 2 x 1 hour sessions in the Main Hall at 10:00 and 11:15.
Students can just show up.
Next week we will have Class Rep meetings happening each day, If you are in College please attend. Each one will give you a chance to speak to Managers of the College about the issues that affect you and your fellow students.
Each meeting will take place at 12-2pm and a subway lunch will be provided. You can book the session you wish to attend through the enrichment booking system.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday will take place in the FG01, and Wednesday will be a Mental Health themed meeting in the Main Hall.
After the week has taken place the SU will compile an action report of the outcomes from each meeting so that we can make sure changes take place.
Any questions just contact us: email@example.com or use Facebook.
Pudsey Bear and other well-known mascots surprised shoppers by racing through Canterbury city centre to raise hundreds of pounds for Children In Need.
Nine mascots took part in the charity race through Whitefriars organised by Canterbury College Students’ Union this lunch time (15th November). A large crowd watched Nando’s chicken sprint to victory in the Mascot Race final (following two qualifying heats).
The chicken beat Pudsey, Alex the Canterbury College Meerkat, Subway Man, Christ Church University’s Rover the Dog, the University of Kent bunny, the Fit4less Gorilla, Titch the TeamTheme Turtle, mascots for the club nights Alphabeats and Soap, and Daisy the pantomime cow from the Marlowe’s Jack and the Beanstalk.
The races were started by CBeebies star Phil Gallagher (aka Mister Maker) who is appearing in the Marlowe pantomime and has worked with Canterbury College in the past. While the races were taking place, students with charity buckets raised money from onlookers.
The race was one of several Children In Need events organised by Canterbury College Students’ Union.
Back at College, there was a host of Comic-Con themed events. Comic-Con is an annual celebration of everything TV, film, video game and anime-related, taking place in cities across the globe. Students got in the Comic-Con spirit by dressing up as their favourite movie, TV, video game or anime character. There was more than one Superman, Batman and even a Wonder Woman.
There was also hero-style nail art and face painting by Beauty Therapy students, a computer games tournament, a Segway challenge, cake sales, live music and some students wore onesies.
At the College’s Swale campus, students held a charity tea party at the local heritage centre. Students will be taking part in a sponsored walk, charity raffles and cakes sales next week.
