Principal’s blog

We have been busy over the past two weeks, marketing and promoting New College Doncaster. I would like to say a big thank you to all those who came to our first student takeover event at Nando’s. If you missed it, we have another one organised for 1st June, see our Facebook site for details.

We are currently organising our first set of community roadshows. Please come along to meet myself and some key staff, and to view the plans and 3D walkthrough of the new buildings. The dates and times are:
Wednesday 25th May 5 – 7.30pm, Hayfield School
Wednesday 8th June 5 – 7.30pm Epworth Imperial Hall
Monday 13th June 5 – 7.30pm Rossington Community Sports village
Wednesday 22nd June 5 – 7.30pm Thorne Brooke Primary
Wednesday 29th June 5 – 7.30pm Retford Leisure Centre

I have also had some fantastic meetings with key people and organisations in Doncaster. We want to ensure that NCD is a community hub, with links to regional organisations that will develop learners’ skills beyond the curriculum. In particular Club Doncaster and the Doncaster Leisure & Tourism Trust (DCLT) have both provided fantastic ideas that will benefit our future learners and the community.
