Eastleigh College make their laughs count for Comic Relief 2017
This year, Eastleigh College staff donned their silliest red outfits in aid of Comic Relief. From lobsters and ladybirds to Where’s Wally and 118, the college was a sea of red to celebrate the fundraising cause.
Luckily the embarrassment didn’t last, as the staff triumphantly beat the students in the cycling challenge with a total of 68.9 miles cycled compared to the 61.3 miles achieved by the students.
The College are pleased to confirm they raised £258 for Comic Relief, and to celebrate Chief Executive and Principal Jan Edrich attended the official board meeting in her costume!
Eastleigh College opens a rapid-turnaround onsite Covid-19 testing centre
Eastleigh College is offering rapid-turnaround lateral flow tests for learners and staff to help in the fight against Covid-19. Lateral flow tests can produce quick results and can be used to identify Covid-19 infection in those without symptoms (asymptomatic). It is hoped that running these tests across the college will result in faster detection of cases for learners and staff without symptoms, and therefore achieve a more effective prevention of infection.
