New and improved Reflection Area open to students
A new Reflection Area has opened at Eastleigh College, a dedicated space for students to use to reflect, encourage faith and improve wellbeing.
The new area, which has been guided by valuable student feedback, gives students a place to pray and reflect confidentially throughout their time at College.
Two art students who were involved in the creation of the Reflection Area, designed and painted the room, making it colourful and youthful in order to encourage students to utilise the space.
Fazal, a student at Eastleigh College, who is one of many already benefitting from the new area describes, “It is a nice, clean, comfortable and easy to use room which I have used for prayer.”
The College recognises the importance of giving students the opportunity to express their beliefs at College. Ajay Ladher, Work Experience Coordinator at Eastleigh College worked with the students to create the new area and highlights, “We are an inclusive college that celebrates diversity and the Reflection Room removes any barriers to learning and offers a safe place to pray. It’s important to give students a dedicated space to reflect when life gets busy.”
The room is located in the College’s Learning Centre and is open every day. Students who are also interested in getting involved in a faith group, can email email@example.com.
