The Principal’s Blog at PRC talks about my guest appearance at the opening of the new Learning Resource Centre!

It was a real honour last week when I, along with Fiona Onasanya MP, was invited as a guest for the official opening of the new Learning Resource Centre at Peterborough Regional College. I had an amazing time, met lots of wonderful people, including some readers of my book, which I more than happily signed when asked to do so, and was presented with a beautiful bouquet of flowers to boot. Fiona was amazing, an MP with a heart, I could have talked to her for hours. It was also a great pleasure to meet Principal Terry Jones and I’d like to offer a heartfelt thanks to the Learning Resource Centre Manager, Louise Auckland, for inviting me. 

Below is Principal Terry Jones’s Blog Post about the event, where I am pictured with him, along with Fiona (cutting the ribbon) and Louise.

Abbey Road

Tara outside Abbey Road StudiosThe Abbey Road recording studio in London is world famous for being the choice of musicians such as the Hollies, the Beatles and Pink Floyd. Now it’s acted as the venue for one of our Level 3 music students, Tara Pasveer.

Tara sang some lead lines on the theme song for the ‘Yellow Audio Book’ along with the organiser Pete Hirst, Mark Morris of the Bluetones and BBC Folk Music Award Winner Lucy Ward. Tara excelled herself in the studio and was a credit to the course and the college. She was professional and received really good feedback from the production team, as well as the engineers at Abbey Road. Well done Tara – you’re a great example of how hard work, talent and application can open doors to amazing opportunities.

Back home in the College last week, we were privileged to welcome Fiona Onasanya MP to open our new Learning Resource Centre. Fiona enjoyed a tour of the College facilities, a briefing on the University Project and was able to chat with students and staff about their experiences here. We were especially pleased to have as our guests famous author Eva Jordan, student Kai Weston (who chose the name for the LRC), Elaine Pocklington from ARU and Claire Chinnery who was the head librarian here for many years.

Lastly, and definitely not leastly, it was great to see Mick Papworth back in the College to represent Lindum – the builders who actually did the work. The Lindum team did a great job, finishing on time and budget to deliver a great facility.
