REMEMBRANCE DAY - TUESDAY 11th NOVEMBER

On Tuesday 11th November at 10.45am we would like to meet in Peoples Park as a whole college to observe a two minute silence as a mark of respect to those that have given their lives and fought for our country in World War One but also in more recent years.


In addition to the calendar invite sent out last week Banbury Royal British Legion will be holding their Armistice service in Peoples Park - so Banbury and Bicester College will be taking this opportunity to support such a wonderful community event. Please assemble at the War Memorial for 10:45am.

  • CHARITY TOMBOLA - in Reception (all prize donations will be gratefully received - please hand in at Reception before Wednesday next week)
  • RUN, CYCLE OR ROW YOUR WAY TO VICTORY - sport will be taking over Banbury Reception and we will be trying our very hardest to travel 100 miles over the 2 days! Pop down to Reception and sign up for your slot! Every few miles will help!

There will be buckets and donation boxes around the campus so please donate generously for such a good cause.

BRAKE NATIONAL ROAD SAFETY WEEK

Monday, Nov. 17th, 8:30am to Friday, Nov. 21st, 4:30pm

Banbury and Bicester College

Distraction is about where your mind is at – if it’s not on the main task at hand, you’re distracted. If you’re distracted when using roads, it could cost you or someone else their life.

On Friday 21st November Oxfordshire Fire Service will be visiting Banbury and Bicester College to host some 'Tune into Road Safety' workshops for students. Slots are available at 11.30am and 12pm and last for approximately twenty minutes for a maximum of 20 students. If you would like to book your students into a session please contact Josie Murray on 51706 or email josie.murray@banbury-bicester.ac.uk
