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 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.
