January 2019 Newsletter

Our holidays already seem like a long time ago as we all came back knowing we have a busy term ahead and Pre-Assessment dates are fast approaching. We have all been hard at work but did find time for some fun.

Enrichment

We are a multicultural College with students and staff from over 18 different countries, but we all have living on Mallorca in common. To share some of Mallorca’s rich heritage and for San Sebastian we had some very special guests visit us- Dimonis. They shared the story of where they come from, what you need to be a Dimoni and all the customs around it.

Ian and Amy from Renegade Martial Arts came in to give us a self defence class. It was great to see the students letting off steam while learning a new skill.

Enrichment also gives our students important life skills before they go to University and start to live alone. A2 students learnt how to prepare tapas at Lonja 18. We all enjoyed the tortilla, croquetas and other snacks they shared with us .

Deep concentration
Enjoying the efforts of their hard work!

Many of our students are receiving offers from Universities and are being asked for face to face or online interviews.
We were lucky enough to benefit from the time of two excellent professionals who gave our students some final interview practice. Feedback has been great!

And for our students who are thinking of a Gap Year. Theresa from Rustic Pathways came in and told us all about the Adventure sports and Community service trips they organise.

On College Wednesdays our staff get together to work on various CPD projects. Here the Humanities department are working on cross curricular links.

On the 22 February we will be holding another popular Taster Day. A chance for prospective students and parents to come in and meet us and find out about who we are and what we offer. We are excited to have Loughborough College joining us to talk about our new collaboration offering a BTEC qualification in Sport as of next Academic Year.
