President – Claire Gilpin
As a mature student and single parent, there were times when I contemplated if University was really the right path for me however I soon found friends in the same position as me. We decided to set up Family Soc for student parents and carers to get together with their children to make friends and share study tips. In the first few months of the society we have had a film/craft day on campus and enjoyed a night of free bowling. It’s a great way meet other people and I would encourage any new student parents/carers to look us up on Facebook and take part in our free society! This year we are hoping to organise ice skating, a day at the beach and a trip to Flamingo Land amongst other things – bring your ideas forward and we will try to make it happen 🙂 see you in October!
