From education to employment

Students celebrate during awards evening

Students and staff came together at Sussex Coast College last Friday to celebrate a year of academic and personal achievement.

The Student President and Student Union team put on a magnificent end of year awards evening to celebrate another fantastic year at the college.

Almost 200 guests attended the awards ceremony, which was held in the atrium at the Station Plaza campus. It was a great opportunity for students and staff to get together and celebrate before many of them depart for the summer and embark on new adventures in September.

The students were delighted to be joined by award sponsors, The Italian Way, More Radio, Hastings Direct, Chapel Press, Cobb PR, and the Observer; as well as a student dance group, who performed a Bollywood dance routine, and local entrepreneur, Jo Fairley, founder of Green and Blacks chocolate, who motivated students with her talk about endeavour.

Guests heard about the students’ outstanding achievements, dedication to their studies and helping their peers, as well as giving special recognition to three students for their contribution towards college life and their outstanding achievements against the odds.

Tsungai Mujera, Student President at Sussex Coast College, said: “We had a fantastic evening celebrating at the student awards with our friends and family. I know that everyone has worked so hard during the last year, and the awards evening is a great way to recognise and celebrate this.

I’d like to thank everyone who has helped to make the evening a success and would like to wish everyone all the best for the future.”
