After the first few weeks of a new term the students are, on the whole, settled down and working hard. It has come as quite a shock to many of the new students just how much effort and application is required of them and the leap between pre 16 and post 16 education is high.
We have already had some excellent Enrichment sessions amongst which we have had workshops on Managing Finances; Life Coaching; Interview Skills; Entrepreneurial Pathways; a presentation by The Rotary Club; an Artist’s afternoon, Study Skills and a presentation on Drugs and Sexual behaviour. The students have remained open and interested in what our speakers have to say and we are looking forward to more exciting activities throughout the term and to our Sponsored Walk on 26th September.
The U6 have begun their applications for the next steps be it university, a further education pathway or a planned GAP year. We do encourage all of them to have made firm decisions by the end of this term in order for us to assist in the many and varied applications that they have.
Palma College also hosted for La Caja Blanca an event for art lovers to meet the artist who they were presenting during the La Nit de l’Art 2015 – Maria José Argenzio’s (Ecuador, 1977) debut show in Spain, with an exhibition entitled “Nobleza Obliga” curated by Fernando Castro Flórez.
