Christmas Fayre provides festive sparkle
Thursday, 19 December 2013
Hundreds of students, College staff and special guests enjoyed a Christmas Fayre at Seevic College on Thursday 12 December.
The Fayre was organised by Essential Skills learners at the College, who produced items to sell as part of an enterprise project to raise money for charity.
The students, who were able to embed skills such as numeracy, horticulture, key skills, problem solving and communication in to the event, were visited at the Fayre by special VIP guest Cllr Mayse Iles, Mayor of Castle Point.
Cllr Iles said: “It’s really important that all young people in the Borough learn about commerce and especially how they can work together to make things happen. The items I’ve seen today are of a very impressive quality and are beautifully presented - if they were to be sold in a shop I think they would do very well.”
Profits from the Fayre have been donated to the College’s Charity Week appeal. The Charity Week runs from 16-20 December, supporting local and national good causes including Canvey Island Youth Project and Shelter Box Philippines Appeal.
Seevic College’s Essential Skills programme sees students learn and develop skills that will give them the confidence to effectively manage their lives both at home and in their local community.
The programme incorporates the development of independent living skills and basic skills such as numeracy, literacy and ICT. It is specifically designed for those who would benefit from learning within a supported environment with small class sizes and a focus on personal and social development.
Seevic College offers the widest choice of A-Levels in South Essex plus BTEC Diplomas, Professional Qualifications, Higher Education and Apprenticeships.
