Happy Anniversary, SBCS Trincity!
The Trincity Campus, SBCS’ Centre for Graphic Communication, commemorated its seventh anniversary with a number of events, starting with an ABE orientation on Friday 04th September 2015. The Campus and CCPP Manager, Candy Douglas opened the session with a lively and motivational welcome address to the students and parents in attendance. A series of activities then followed that included quizzes about the school and the ABE programme, where attendees won SBCS packages if answered correctly. The orientation ended with a tour of the facilities and students were treated to ice cream upon their departure.
On the official anniversary date, Saturday 05th September, the ‘buzz’ around the campus was undeniable, as enthusiastic staff members distributed cupcakes to students and lecturers in celebration of the campus’ birthday. More than the confectionary goodies, personnel on campus were also treated to the Graphic Design Exhibition, which was coordinated by Senior Academic Administrator and Lecturer, Jonathan Felix, and his students.
The full-time ABE cohort eagerly returned to the campus on Tuesday 08th September for the official start of their classes; the fervor of the anniversary celebrations still prevalent throughout the campus.
Wednesday 09th September, dubbed ‘Wacky Wednesday’ was the highlight of the week. Students and staff members were encouraged to come dressed in their ‘wackiest’ attire; the wackiest of them all judged to be student, Aziza Lourenco, who was gifted with SBCS gear as her prize.
As the first week of classes drew to a close, the ABE full-time students were invited to a social event on Friday 11th September, called ‘full yuh belly Friday’, which was organised by Course Administrators Curlan Devonish and Renee Ashman. All students were treated to delicious eats and participated in some fun games that were planned by Student Services Administrator, Joshu Morris. Students were gifted with more SBCS paraphernalia for their participation.
The period of celebration ended on Saturday 12th September in fitting fashion, with another day for the Graphic Design Exhibition from the campus’ Higher National Diploma (HND) in Graphic Design students. Visitors, including SBCS’ Executive Director, Dr. Robin Maraj, were impressed with all projects and pieces on display.
Over its seven (7) years of service, the campus has continued to improve its reputation and range of programme offerings to stay relevant to the needs of its leaners and staff. Such a pursuit has resulted in upgrades of facilities, professional development of staff, and the promotion of new qualifications – principal among them, the University of Sunderland, BA (Hons) in Graphic Design.
The Management and staff of the campus thank all participants in the celebratory activities for the patronage, and stakeholders for their continued support of the campus’ ventures.
