It's been an exciting week with two awards being won and students being involved in a variety of activities.
We are rapidly heading towards the Easter break and then on to the final few weeks of this academic year and this always proves to be a busy time, with a flurry of activity and we will be sure to keep you informed.
Let's concentrate on this week.
Gold Award for Student Association!
We are very proud to announce that Glasgow Kelvin Student Association carried off the Gold Award in the Diversity category at this year's NUS Scotland Awards held in Dunblane recently. The additional hard work they have done this year on the White Ribbon campaign has received this spectacular recognition and they were delighted to accept the award on the night.
Well done to everyone involved for a great effort - You deserve this!
New Website Snatches Silver!
The College's new website has won an award within the first two months of its life! At this year's College Development Network Marketing Awards, Hilary Ramsay accepted the Silver Award in the category of Student Award for Best Website on behalf of the team. This category is judged directly by students and sits outwith the judging process so it's a real accolade to be recognised in this way.
Congratulations go to sister college, Glasgow Clyde, who picked up the gold award.
Massive congratulations to Hilary, Tracey and the whole team who have been (and are still!!) involved with the building of the new website - your hard work has certainly paid off!

Working Together Effectively!
We have had a great collaboration between the HND TV students and the Art department. HND TV students needed TV Crew T shirts for when they were out on location or filming at an event. Stella Tobia spoke to one of the Art lecturers Alastair Strachan who put her in touch with Art technician Stevie Walker and Tobi Ayobami, one of their HNC Art students, who did the design for us.
Yesterday the HND 1st and 2nd year TV students brought along a black T shirt and screenprinted them with Tobi's design, under Stevie's supervision. We're delighted with the result. Here are some photos.
