Student Council Support Peers
Members of Luton Sixth Form College’s Student Council have been hard at work with a series of initiatives to support their peers. They recently purchased 1000 hand sanitisers from their budget to encourage fellow students to continue to observe good hand hygiene. These were provided free of charge and helps the college continue its work in ensuring a safe learning environment.
"We, as the student council, wanted to help to stop the spread of the virus,” said Student Council member Elissa Dhali. "This is because we want students to have access to all the facilities they need so that they can achieve excellent grades and have a healthy mindset.
"This project will help to encourage students to look after their health and the health of others. Additionally, it will allow students who can't afford hand sanitisers to have access to one."
This initiative was followed up by free period products for female students, which the college have been promoting as a result of their participation in a government scheme which aims to ensure no young person’s education is disrupted.
“I am immensely proud of my students for the continued leadership they have shown around these very important issues,” said Principal Altaf Hussain. “We take health and mental wellbeing very seriously, and the work of the Student Council underlines our commitment to ensuring that the college provides a positive learning environment.”
