University of Worcester taster day
Six students from Worcester Sixth Form College, with an interest in becoming Paramedics, recently attended a taster day at the University of Worcester. The students enjoyed a very exciting hands-on experience and were able to use real equipment learning how to take ECGs, put on bandages and slings as well as taking blood pressure and practising CPR. The students spoke to current undergraduates on the Foundation degree in Paramedic Science about their experiences and were very impressed by the course and the facilities - it really inspired them!
WSFC student wins local Rotary Club Photography Competition
Milena Kierzkowska, a first year student at Worcester Sixth Form College, recently won the Worcester Vigornia Rotary Club Photography Competition in the senior level. In addition to being presented with a certificate, Milena’s prize will include attending an event with Mike Henley, professional photographer, which it is hoped will be a beneficial experience. Mike is also a member of Worcester Vigornia Rotary Club. Milena, who is currently studying AS levels in Media Studies, Photography, Psychology and Travel and Tourism, said of her success: “I was inspired to produce the photo by seeing some amazing sunsets in the course of several evenings, so to achieve the best composition I aimed to take photographs in a creative and imaginative way. I am very satisfied with the successful outcome.” Cathryn Lacey, Youth Services Committee Chair at Worcester Vigornia Rotary Club, said: Worcester Vigornia Rotary Club congratulates Milena on winning their Young Photographer Competition with her wonderful entry on the subject of 'our world is beautiful'. Rotary supports, encourages and celebrates the talents and skills of young people and aims to be a force for good in the community, putting service above self.”
