On Sunday 14 August the students spent the day at the Bob Cook Games, hosted by the Chippenham Lions Club in Swindon, where they met up with the local Gateways club members to support them in action on the athletics track and in field events.
Back on campus, the college hosted the Barry Summer camp organised through Barry Communities First, where there was a range of fun activities from the daily swims to the castle tours and treasure hunts.
The Community Lunches were again well attended and received by the local seniors groups who were entertained with music, led by the music therapy students and castle tours, led by faculty students. The Faculty appreciates the continued support from their seniors from the local area for them to be able to host these events, helping them bridge the intergenerational gap in today’s society.
Some students also worked off campus with the Bridgend Castle Players to build their theatrical props and back-drops, as well as assisting at the Llantwit Red Cross Shop, as part of our regular service in the community.
Christine Mak, Head of the Social Justice Faculty, thanked all the individuals and the local agencies for their input and support to make the Social Justice Faculty week such an enjoyable and worthwhile week for us everyone. Christine added ‘We look forward to seeing you again soon.’
