Southwark College proved that its community continues to thrive even during the lockdown as students and staff gathered for a virtual assembly on Thursday, 14 May.

Students from across the College joined the College’s Principal and Vice-Principal, student and services staff for the lively session.

The assembly began with a welcome speech from Annette Cast, Principal at Southwark College, who reassured learners who might be concerned about how the current situation will affect their grades. She said: “We understand that this is a difficult and challenging time for everyone but we are committed to ensuring all students can progress their education and realise their ambitions despite all the challenges they face.

“I want to reassure you that we are actively working to put plans in place to return to face-to-face tuition, supported by online technologies, and I’m very much looking forward to welcoming returning students back on campus safe and well in September.”

Student Governor Amir Javadi took the floor to encourage students to stay connected during lockdown by getting involved in extracurricular opportunities. He invited them to take part in the Genius Lab – a maths and English workshop run by students for students – as well as a series of virtual activities being offered by the LGBTQ club, including a speech from the Student Union president of a leading London university.

Students were also encouraged to spread the word about the virtual open days Southwark College will be holding in June, which will enable people thinking about studying here to meet teachers and find out about the College and courses in their chosen subject area.

At the end of the assembly, students got the chance to pose questions to the Principal, Vice-Principal and student services staff during a Q&A session.

This popular event will be a regular fixture in the College calendar, with another assembly planned for after half term.
