Grantham College celebrates a new academic year with Fresher's Fair

Grantham College kicks off its academic year with Fresher’s Fair 2018

On Wednesday 5th September; our new students were treated to a day of fun and activities with our annual Fresher’s Fair. Kicking off a 9.30am we saw students flood into the sports hall to see the activities that Amy Goswell, Advice and Guidance Coordinator had arranged for them.  

Stalls were held by many different external companies and businesses including the Recovery College, Anytime Fitness and Lincolnshire Sexual Health Service. Stalls were also held by a number of internal staff including a stall from our Activ8+ Scheme, Counselling Service, Study Skills Support, R and R Salons and our Christian Union. All our stall holders chatted with our students, gave them some freebies and got involved in our activities. 

There was also a stall full of freebies (we hope the students grabbed some as they made their way round!), a photo-booth with fun Hawaiian props, a sweets stall full of Pick ‘n’ mix and a Face Painting stall getting all the students festival ready! 

The fun didn’t end there though as students (and tutors) we’re able to show their competitive side on an inflatable gladiator dual and an inflatable bungee run. At lunchtime we also had an ice cream van come by providing our students with some tasty treats. 

Students are also welcomed to take part in our Instagram contest to be in with a chance to win a brand-new Fitbit. All students need to do is upload a photo of themselves at our Fresher’s Fair or a photo of the freebies they picked up and tag us in their photo. To be in with a chance to win you must be following our Instagram @GranthamCollege and hashtag the photo #GranthamCollege. There are also two runner up prizes of high street vouchers. Competition ends on Monday 10th September at 4pm with winners being contacted by Grantham College by the Friday 14th September.
