Children in Need 2009

25th November 2009 Children in Need 2009

The cheers are still ringing in the ears of the bed push team from North Halifax Skills Centre who after a gruelling three hours pushing a hospital bed from North Halifax Skills Centre, Ovenden to Calderdale College via Dean Clough and Halifax town centre raised almost £900. The team were strongly supported along the way and even the Security team at Dean Clough were very generous and allowed the students into the NHS offices to collect donations. They were joined at George Square by Chris Jones, Principal who helped with the up hill push from Halifax town centre to the College. The team finally went on to Eureka to join other invited fundraisers for the live BBC link up. Andy Jowett, Brickwork Tutor and fellow bed pusher said "It was a tremendous effort by students and staff, although it was damaging to their street cred the students really enjoyed taking part."

20th November 2009

As part of National Enterprise Week, BTEC Business students worked together on a number of activities and competitions. The BTEC National and First Diploma students worked together in groups of 5 and each group was given £20 and told to be entrepreneurial! Some students used the money to run a car wash, others raffle competitions and stalls. The students and staff had a really fun learning experience as they battled it out to see which group could make the most money. Next week they will be working on a challenge before presenting their ideas to a Dragons Den style panel with external judges.
