Army Competition Success! PDF Print Email

Itchen Sixth Form College participated in a new army competition involving colleges within the Hampshire region called Exercise Mulberry at McMullen Barracks, Marchwood, Southampton .

 

The students had to take part in a range of activities including physical challenges, teambuilding and leadership tasks and opportunities to talk to serving military personnel. It was an extremely successful day for Itchen leaving with both 1st and 2nd place. Many of the students had different opinions on their favourite stance, some felt that the ration station was a popular favourite; this is where they were given information on the eating habits of the soldiers when on operations. They also got the chance to taste a few of these which some thought was the highlight of their day.

Children in Need PDF Print Email

In support of a major UK charity, Children in Need, thousands turned out for the now annual (and not to mention spectacular) fun run - which is essentially, a VERY silly lap around the College!

 

Students and staff raced away from the start point on the football pitch, then around the outskirts of the college on nearby streets (in full public view) straight down Middle Road and around the back into the grounds again. Most participants chose to dress up in costumes of their choice, from the clever and colourful to the clearly questionable!

 

This year, we were filmed by the BBC and starred in the local newspapers. The event itself raised £775, and over the last four weeks we have raised £1500 for charity - so all in all we have done fantastically well towards helping others.

 

Staff and student photos from the event will be ready to view very soon from our Facebook page.

 

 
From studies to Spain! A visit from Steph Arthur PDF Print Email

Childcare students at ISFC were recently visited by former course student Steph Arthur, who has successfully entered the profession almost immediately after she completed her studies here at Itchen.

 

Steph completed her Level 2 to Level 3 qualifications in Childcare last year, and has since been employed by the established travel agency Thomson as a holiday rep for children. She has just finished her first term based in Spain.

 

Current 2nd year students were given an inspirational talk about the excitement of working in the industry, and how Itchen has set her on the right path to do well in her chosen career. She also told them that as an Itchen Childcare student, she had a wealth of experience and high standards of professionalism.

 

To Steph, we say congratulations and wish her the very best in her new and exciting career.
