03 March 2017 Candi student success

Read about some of the sporting success and awards that students at City and Islington College have achieved, including the SESSA Indoor Athletics and the Jack Petchey Award Presentation 2017.

Jack Petchey Award Presentation 2017

Seven students from City and Islington College attended the Jack Petchey Award Presentation in January, recognising the outstanding contribution they have made to the College, their peers or their community.

The students accepted their Awards from the Camden and Islington Borough Commander Katherine Roper and Her Worshipful, the Mayor of Islington Councillor Kat Fletcher. Showing their support for the students and the Foundation, the evening was attended by student engagement staff, family and friends.

Attending the presentation are: Abdul Halim, Cindy Agbonwaneten, Ijamaan Mahamed, Jasmine Ike-Michael, Rahma Ahmed Sehikh, Tasmina Syeda Begum and Diana Lucia Gomez Paniagua.

Candi Basketball Team

The Candi Basketball team are currently unbeaten in the London Colleges’ Basketball League, run by LBA, winning four out of four so far. Representatives have been from SFC, CAS and CLL. Some of the WKC students have been attending the Candi training to develop their games and a match between the two sides is scheduled soon. Former England international Julius Joseph now coaches both squads. The change to City University’s state of the art new facility has made the training session more attractive for everyone.

SESSA Indoor Athletics

Valentina Granata a Sixth Form student enjoyed a fabulous result in the Sessa Indoor Athletics 400m held at Lee Valley stadium. Valentina has only recently started competing in the 400m but proved it was an inspired move to that distance having previously been a sprinter at shorter distances. Valentina clocked a personal best of 61.02s to qualify out of her heat into the Women’s 400m final and did well in the final too, maintaining her form in the closing straight to finish in the silver medal position, holding off several older, more experienced athletes and only finishing second to a 2nd year Cambridge University athlete. Valentina really enjoyed the event and is hoping to find some more students interested in competing to form a relay team for the Sessa Outdoor championships in April.

Safer Internet Day 2017

For Safer Internet Day 2017 on the 7th February the libraries promoted their e-safety workshops, ran a quiz competition and visited classrooms to provide tips on creating secure passwords.  47 students were visited during class and 200 quiz entries received.

“I enjoyed taking part in Safer Internet Day in the Library. I entered the quiz and was given some useful guidance on online safety at the Homework Club.” CLL Student
