School starts back for all students on Monday 7th January, we look forward to seeing you then!
As mentioned at yesterday's fantastic Prize Day, the UCC Music Department will be going on tour to Germany in the new year. The band, who performed brilliantly at yesterday's show, will be fundraising for the trip with a Christmas Fayre on Saturday the 24th of November in the Cumberland Hall from 12-2pm. There will be mulled wine, mince pies, a raffle, live music and 20 stalls. Entry will be £1. We look forward to seeing you there!
The Christmas Fayre Poster can be viewed here.
Yesterday was our annual Prize Day - where we celebrate all that has happened at UCC in the past year. It was a fantastic event with amazing performances from our buskers, our Big Band, our drama students, our dancers, our Street Band and our gymnasts. Thanks goes to our wonderful sponsors and, of course, to our guests England Rugby 7 players Mike Ellery and Dan Bibby. Our review film will be online in the near future, in the meantime you can view our Prize Day 2018 film and our introduction to our guests below. We'd like to thank our printers Absolute Digital Print for allowing us in to film whilst they printed the most recent edition of our Success Magazine. You can join in the conversation by using #PrizeDay18.

Our Guests' Intro Show Reel:
Hi all, just want to say sorry for the delay in getting this latest instalment to you – it has been a busy few weeks for us, and you are about to find out what we have been up to since we started our placement in ‘Stralia.
When I left you, I had updated you on the flight from the UK to Melbourne and the orientation with Lattitude which lasted from the Monday we arrived to the Wednesday of the same week. Now that we are well into our placements, I can update you on what has happened since then.
Taking the train from Melbourne, we arrive at the suburb where we are to be working (Pakenham – named after the Duke of Wellington’s brother in law), met at the station by HR who assigns us our departments – P.E for me. We are taking to the campus where I am to be working then we are given a tour of the site, and it is NOT small. That afternoon we sort out the paperwork needed to sort our placement, and set up our staff IPads. Yes, we are provided with IPads (and at no cost to make it even better). As three o’clock comes round our host families come to meet us. Although I’d had opportunity to e-mail Craig prior to my departure, it was great to meet him in person – he has a great sense of humour and is very family orientated so I knew he would be a great host.
