Morgan, Liah and Jess are FdA Musical Theatre students at Bucks College Group and second year students at Bucks New Uni. One of their modules required them to devise a community, so together they set up an outreach project aimed at spreading awareness of the negative effects that social media can have, called Keeping it Social. Keeping it Social highlights the severity of cyber bullying and the detrimental effects it has on many young people, encouraging people to think twice before saying or posting something.
Throughout Black History Month, our Level 3 Fashion Retail students have been busy researching how fashion brands are responding to the issue of equality and diversity. They each wrote their own blog about what brands are doing and how this can inspire other brands to follow in their steps. We are so pleased to see our students reflecting on such an important issue and relating it to their industry. To ensure we could share everyone's blogs, we have compiled excerpts from each.
This October, the College is celebrating Black History Month. In support of the campaign, I. Stephanie Boyce recorded a video to share her journey and inspire the College's students and staff to never give up on a goal.
