Thursday 9th June - Education Studies Community Day
On Thursday 9th June the Education Studies Department are hosting a community get-together 11-2pm in our outdoor garden area behind the Social Sciences building. It will be a chance to meet up with students from your course and from other courses. Everyone is encouraged to bring their own lunch. There will be some activities to join in with or chances to chat and catch up. All our community are welcome and encouraged to come (students and staff). We also have an indoor room booked if the weather is not kind to us.
Come along and join us on Thursday 9th June from 11am. I will send out further reminders as we get nearer to the event.
