Celebrating Newman Day 2019
Students and staff had a fantastic day for our annual Newman Day celebrations in November. It is a day where students and staff come together, in an off–timetable day and engage in a huge line-up of activities, workshops and talks from a whole array of different speakers.
This year there were almost 50 different sessions taking place, run by a combination of Newman staff and visiting speakers from all number of different organisations from charities to past students, talking about topics ranging from Climate Change to working with asylum seekers to more creative sessions where students designed their own eco-friendly bags or artworks based on the theme of ‘Design & Equality’.
There were also lots of charity fundraisers going on throughout Newman Day, with ‘Charity Gaming’ and a raffle and cake sale organised by our library team to raise funds for the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
There were inspiring talks from former Newman student Edward Morgan, who now runs his own Production Company “Northern Town” as well as the Choose Life Project who help to educate young people about the dangers of drugs through frank discussions of their own experiences.
As ever the day was hugely successful and really beneficial for all involved – a great part of our amazing college community.
