Doncaster College has teamed up with Hall Cross School
for the second year running to put on a 'post-16 Opportunities' day
for more than 320 learners.
The event took place at its upper school site in the town
centre, where year eleven students were treated to a lively,
interactive day of activities and displays staged by students and
staff from The College.
Dance students re-created the famous flash-mob routine that took
The Hub campus staff and students by storm last month - as well as
music students playing a range of instruments and singing
Alongside the entertainment, a canoe and other sports equipment
was present together with staff from Engineering, Construction,
Arts, Childcare, Catering, Creative Media, Hair and Beauty,
Apprenticeships and Careers.
Hall Cross School was keen to further develop links with The
College and so it was decided that this event would run again into
its second year.
Angela Gibson, from Hall Cross School said, "The event went
really well because of the detailed planning and hard work put in
by The College team in advance of the event.
"On the day itself, the staff and students from Doncaster
College were superb. They were full of energy, enthusiasm and were
able to convey this to our pupils. Our school hall was bouncing
with noise and activity.
"Having spoken to some of our pupils, I know The College
activities was one of the main highlights of the day. It certainly
raised the profile of Doncaster College and as a result will
encourage more of our pupils to apply for courses there. I hope
that we will be able to put on a similar event next year."
A spokesperson from Doncaster College, said, "The event was a
great success and we appreciate the invitation from Hall Cross to
participate once again and also for their hospitality.
"Working closely with Hall Cross was a great experience and has
created links that we will both be able to build on in the future.
We have had a lot of interest from students at Hall Cross and hope
to see many more of them in the near future."
