On Tuesday 10th November, our Level 3 Public Services students simulated a casualty evacuation to raise money for the Royal British Legion in aid of Remembrance Day.
Carrying two casualties on stretchers between them, the students walked from Eastleigh College to the war memorial in Eastleigh town centre where they were met by a member of the Royal British Legion.
They were met at the war memorial in Eastleigh by Bill Ronan, a previous Public Services staff member at Eastleigh College, and a standard bearer from the Royal British Legion.
Bill Ronan said “It was great to see the students so smart and taking the event so seriously – and even wanting to carry the dummies back to College!”
Helen Carr, Lecturer in Public Services at Eastleigh College, said “The students were a credit to their course and carried out the event with the outmost respect and dignity. I am very proud of their efforts and amazed at the amount they have raised between them for the Royal British Legion.”
Through personal sponsorship the students managed to raise an amazing £318.94.
The Eastleigh College Board and Senior Management Team have launched an ambitious strategy for the period 2020-24 that sets out the College’s priorities to see more learners, be more successful, more often.
The College has remained open throughout the Covid-19 pandemic for many learners and as from September 2020 all learners (including those planning to attend at College House) have returned to a full high-quality education programme as per government guidelines.
