Student wellbeing is our priority this year. As a result of the pandemic and lack of social interaction, we are conscious that wellbeing must be catered for. This year we have a new student committee role dedicated to this mission, the Welfare Representative. We are constantly trying to find platforms and activities to improve student wellbeing this year. We welcome other ideas/ suggestions from students that may enrich student welfare and wellbeing.
