The Student Association represent the views of our 3,700 strong student body. As well as organising brilliant fundraising events such as RAG Week and Pink Day, the SA arrange Freshers' Fair, a great introduction to the start of College, and Leavers' Ball, an evening to celebrate before moving on from college. The President and Vice President, who are elected by our students, are also Academy Quality Councillors and attend regular meetings to have a real say on the future direction of the College. There are ten members of the SA and you can read about the 2018/19 elected students below!
Chloe Williams - President
To begin with, I would like to thank everyone who voted for me as President! Being President allows me to have the unique opportunity to work with both the staff and students of Farnborough to make sure it is the best for learning.
My role includes attending board meetings as a student governor, chairing weekly Student Association meetings, planning events, leading and managing the Student Association and lastly representing the College at public functions. I am really excited for the academic year of 2018/2019 and what will come of it.
James Barber - Vice President
Firstly, thank you for everyone who voted for me. I am excited to serve you as your Vice President in your Student Association, working alongside a varied and skilled team, I look forward to working with you to create a better environment for us all to learn and grow together in.
With college playing such an important role in bridging the gap between secondary school and education, I think it is important that the environment we adapt in is as dynamic, exciting and useful as is possible. Working with the Tutor Reps, I hope to gather the voices of every student and alongside the President, represent your collective voice as an Academy Quality Councillor.
Sophie Rossiter - Treasurer
I am very excited to be able to be your Treasurer for the next year. During the next year, I will be responsible for keeping track of all the funds, ensuring we have enough funding for events, as well as filling out invoices and helping to raise money to allow the Student Association to put on all the amazing events throughout the year!
And if you have any ideas/thoughts about what your SA can do for you, let me know.
Chloe Smith - Communications and Marketing
This year I am acting as the Communications and Marketing officer for the Student Association. As much as this is something I would normally deem out of my comfort zone, I think that's what college is all about! Trying new things, learning new skills, and meeting new people. And I can't wait to do all of these things with my fellow SA members this year.
Since my main role is comms and marketing, you'll be seeing a lot of me on the SA social media sites, as well as in your email box, and plastering the halls with posters! I'm always happy to help with any questions or queries, just drop me an email or come to see me in the office.
Elspeth Day - Community Engagement
My role, as the Community Engagement officer encompasses everything from charities to doing things within the local community. I want our college to be able to make a real difference to people's lives this year, while still supporting as many different good causes as we can. I feel as though people can really get behind and donate if they have fun while doing it.
As a whole SA, we all have many ideas which support both local and national causes. If anyone has any causes which they want the Student Association to support, drop me an email or feel free to knock on our door!
Katherine Kerr - Learning Experience
I am looking forward to representing you as the Student Association Learning Experience officer. This coming year, I would like to develop a student satisfaction survey to assess all aspects of College life including all factors associated with learning.
If you have any questions or something you would like to discuss, please either talk to your Subject Representative who will ensure it gets passed on to me, or drop by the office and I will deal with your issue as efficiently as possible. I will do my best to ensure that your learning experience is positive over the coming year.
Saleem Kaa - Equality and Diversity
First of all, I’d just like to thank everyone who voted for me and I’m looking forward to serving as you Equality and Diversity officer for 2018-19.
This year, I hope to introduce you all to cultures you may not have experienced before, as well as allowing all of you to fully immerse yourselves in your own backgrounds. If you have any ideas or concerns regarding cultural and ethnic ideas, please contact me.
Sameer Mazhar - Enrichment
I am very grateful to serve on such an amazing team as your SA for 2018/2019. As Enrichment officer, I plan to try and organise as many activities and events to help make your student life better and more fulfilling.
Working closely with society leaders, we hope that not only can we strive to make your academic life in College better but also all the various social and enrichment options that we are lucky to have here. If you have any queries regarding societies, enrichment activities or even just want to say hello, just email me.
Sayf Wakil - Events
I just wanted to say how excited I am to be coordinating this year’s College events. I’ve got some really exciting stuff lined up for you guys to make sure you have the best possible experience here at Farnborough Sixth, so keep an eye out and get involved!
This year I really want to make sure we’re always doing things you guys want to do, so if you’ve got any ideas at all, don’t hesitate to contact me. We’re here for a good time, not a long time. Don’t stress and have a great year!
