They played four games that consisted of two 10 minute halves without any subs. Goal Keeper, Ergys Xhoxha managed to pull off two magnificent penalty saves during the tournament.

I was extremely proud of them, they were a real credit to the college and should be pleased with their achievement. The team are back in action again on the 23rd November and training takes place on the back field with myself on a Thursday 4.30-6pm.

Further Education Awards Samuel Booth and James Ketchell

Havering College rolled out the red carpet for last year’s most accomplished students at the 2016 Further Education Awards.

On Monday 17th October, Havering College’s most accomplished students were presented with awards for their achievements at the Queens Theatre, Hornchurch in the presence of their family and friends. Over 70 awards were handed out to deserving students, including the Apprentice of the Year award which was won by three of the College’s most talented apprentices, Martin Sare from VocaLink, Saffron Harvey from Scallywags Nursery and Samuel Booth from TMK Stairways.

The awards were presented by special guest, motivational speaker James Ketchell, who wowed the audience with stories of his adventures. James became the ultimate adventurer after being in a serious motorcycle accident that nearly lost him the use of his legs. Despite this, on 1st February 2014, James became the first and only person to have rowed across the Atlantic Ocean, climbed to the summit of Mount Everest and cycled 18,000 miles around the world in what the media dubbed ‘The Ultimate Triathlon’. James’ key message being, we can all potentially set ourselves difficult goals and achieve them; the capability to succeed is within everyone.

Havering College Principal Maria Thompson said:

‘We are enormously proud of our students and their achievements. Tonight is a very special night in our annual events calendar as it is all about recognising and celebrating the hard work and dedication of our students over the past year. Congratulations to all of this year’s winners!’

A record number of students celebrated their first week at Havering College with a whole host of Freshers activities. 

Created to welcome new students to the campus, Freshers Week was fun, informative and free. There was a whole host of activates for students to get involved with including a bungee run, human table football, Batak Pro and more, not to mention an array of Freebies including Ice-cream!

Student services, along with representatives from local organisations provided advice on health, welfare and finance. Local companies offered Freshers the chance to learn about their superb student discounts, even Havering College’s catering department got involved with their guess the vegetable to win a week’s free food!

It was a highly interactive and informative week that gave the Freshers a supportive welcome to the college. 

After a summer of fun, students across the borough have been heading in their hundreds to enrol at Havering College.

This week, Havering College has been a hive of activity as students registered to start their exciting educational journey this Autumn. Although enrolment can be a rather long process, Havering College made it as pleasurable as possible by offering free refreshments, free ice-cream and free entertainment.

It really has been a great week and the staff involved worked very hard to ensure that all students were ready to start.

Now all the paperwork is finished, it’s now time for some fun and that is exactly what Freshers Week promises to provide. From next Monday, Havering College will be offering Freshers the chance to explore their campus, meet the staff, discover all the student services available and have lots of fun. There will be giant inflatable games including a fun bungee run along with food tasting, give-aways, competitions and MORE

Lucy Walker is on a mission to raise money to cure her little brother

Lucy is a student at Havering College and is studying her Level 3 in Media. She is desperate to send her brother, Nathan, across the Atlantic to Texas where he can receive the best possible treatment for his illness. Nathan who is 7, suffers from Hypothalamic Hamartoma, a rare disease where tumour-like malformations occur during foetal development. Because of these tumours, Nathan can suffer up to 25 epileptic seizures every day. In addition, he has recently been diagnosed with autism attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) all of which are all linked to his condition.

His family have been fighting an ongoing battle for his treatment but with limited results.  Although there is a good chance of Nathan being cured, there is currently no NHS funding. The only option therefore is to travel to Texas for treatment.

As you can imagine, this has been a very stressful journey for both Nathan and his family. However, they refuse to give up and are trying to raise the money themselves for Nathan’s treatment.
