Christmas at Canterbury College 2021

The last month has been packed with festivity on campus as the year draws to a close, from charitable social action to students transforming their classrooms into winter wonderlands.

CSVA Pop-Up Art Market

Students from our Canterbury School of Visual Arts (CSVA) collaborated with Canterbury based lifestyle store Rock Paper Scissors to host a Pop-Up Art Market.

Level 3 students had their work on display for purchase, and the money raised will help to fund community projects at College, giving our students valuable work experience and contributing to our curriculum delivery.

CSVA Christmas Market 

The CSVA Christmas Market was held at College and featured a selling exhibition of donated work from our staff and students to purchase, as well as pieces from professional artists. The money raised will be donated to local charity Dandelion Time and fund CSVA community projects, which help our students to gain valuable work experience.

Annual Christmas Cake Competition

Level 1 Catering students had their annual Christmas Cake Competition! They put their skills to the test to create a festive cake complete with Christmas decorations that looked almost too good to eat. Well done to all that took part for your fantastic efforts!

Reindeer Around Campus

Carpentry students have also been busy creating reindeer to be displayed around campus for our Christmas festivities. They were made sustainably, as the students re-used old trestles to construct the reindeer as part of their community week activities. 

Sustainable Christmas Decorations

Engineering and Welding students have also been making sustainable decorations to help decorate the campus, including stars made out of used aluminum cans. 

Staff from our Engineering department also created their own team of elves, to help them carry out their 'elf' and safety procedures. 

Students' Union Winter Fair

This year our Students' Union hosted their annual Winter Fair in the Street on Wednesday 15 December, giving students the chance to find out what they can expect from your SU in 2022. 

From trips, event and student enrichment, students got the opportunity to get involved in something bigger and find out how they can make a difference in the College community.

Supported Learning Sale

In aid of Demelza Hospice, our Supported Learning department sold a wide range of homemade decorations and Christmas treats. Students and staff were able to take part in competitions such as the ever-popular 'Name the Dog'.

Health and Social Care Activities

Health and Social Care students organised a food bank collection for the Students' Union.

The students donated essential items such as food and toiletries to help less fortunate students who may find themselves struggling during the winter months. 

They also created their own winter wonderland in their classrooms and some staff even got involved in some fantastic fancy dress!

Animal Management Fundraiser

Animal Management students made Christmas boxes full of treats and toys to donate to charities Futures for Dogs rescue and AA Dog Rescue.
