Bag Week 2020

Belong and Grow – it’s your BAG week, or #BAG week took place in May 2019. The aim of the week was to celebrate diversity, promote wellbeing and encourage learning for all staff and students. We had a jam packed week of sessions including Yoga, Mind Mapping, Deaf Awareness, Canine Therapy and much more! After such a successful week, we are busy making plans to do it all again, so be sure to look out for details, and save the date – w/c 18th May 2020.
