We hope you are all enjoying the first day of your Easter break, here's hoping the snow doesn't make a reappearance.
The college has had a couple of fundraising activities this week and the library hosted a display for International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
So we have plenty to get on with telling you.
Fashion Bake Sale For SAMH
There were a variety of tasty treats on offer, all served with a smile.
As usual this event proved to be popular with fellow students and staff members (who can resist a cake) and the day saw the team raise £180 for SAMH.
Well done to everyone involved!
SAMH Fundraiser At West Campus
Our January start NQ music Business Events and TV team managed to raise nearly £100 in their first event.
The KRT (Kelvin Recreations Team) curated this collaborative effort with support from Music Business, Events, Film & TV, Sound Production and the Art team.
The students are raising additional money to be donated To SAMH along with the amount raised through the Fashion department. The team managed to sell a fair bit of old Electric Honey merchandise.
See a clip of the event here - Electric Honey Facebook page
Thanks to all involved who made this happen!
Time To Start Planning Submissions For The Craftex Show 2018
Held in the trades Hall of Glasgow, this is an exhibition of the skills taught at all of the Gasgow colleges, co-ordinated by the Trades House of Glasgow.
It really is a great event which gives students recognition in the various industries and last year led a number to employment opportunities and job offers. More details & entry forms here: http://www.tradeshouse.org.uk/education/craftex.aspx.
International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination
March 21st was the 2018 International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. This year's theme was promoting tolerance, inclusion, unity and respect for diversity in the context of combating racial discrimination.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. Yet racism, xenophobia and intolerance are problems prevalent in all societies, along with countless more forms of discrimination.
Why not spend a few minutes watching an informative Powerpoint presentation on the Library plasma TV screen which highlights these issues and library book stock is on display and can be borrowed.
Every day each and everyone of us can stand up against racial prejudice and intolerant attitudes.

Have a great weekend and don't overdo the chocolate!
