Eastleigh Mardi Gras celebrations!
This weekend on Saturday 19th September, Eastleigh College students took to the parade to celebrate the annual Eastleigh Mardi Gras!
Hospitality and Catering students were serving up some delicious pancakes, brownies and biscuits, as well as promoting our brand new restaurant, East Avenue.
East Avenue will be run by our Catering students, and gives them an opportunity to gain experience in a real-life customer environment. The restaurant will be opening soon and the students are excited to get started in such a great facility – be sure to check back to see our progress.
Our Dance students were also at the Mardi Gras, surprising passers-by with their talent in a flash-mob style! The students broke into dance to Mark Ronson’s ‘Uptown Funk’, which gave a fresh twist to the 1940s-themed celebration.
Our students are always getting involved in events, so don’t forget to keep an eye on our social media pages where we will be sharing all the recent news from the College.
The Prime Minister announced that GCSE and A level exams would not take place this summer, and that vocational examinations would continue as planned. We understand how disappointing and concerning this news is and the College seeks to reassure all learners, parents, guardians and employers that the College will seek to ensure no learner is disadvantaged and that we will work to provide as much information and guidance as possible as soon as information is available to us.
