College Open Event visitor wins iPad

Principal and Marketing Manager presenting iPad to winner

Bracknell & Wokingham College were delighted to present a brand new iPad Air to lucky winner Shanelle Laverick, 17, from Bracknell, after she was picked from the college’s recent Open Event prize draw.

The Open Event, on Saturday 15 November, was the college’s largest since 2011 as over 1000 visitors came to the college to discuss courses, routes to employment or higher education, and meet with current students to find out what college life is all about.

Every visitor who completed a registration form at the event was entered into the draw to win the iPad Air, with the winner chosen at random by Vice Principal for Curriculum & Quality James Taylor. The prize was then presented to Shanelle by Principal Campbell Christie CBE and Marketing Manager Jane Chapman whose team organise the event.

Shanelle was impressed with the help and information she received at the event and delighted to be the lucky winner:

“I came to the Open Event as I was thinking about doing an Apprenticeship in Childcare. At the event I got a lot of information that helped me to think through properly what I’d like to do in future and I know now that I would like to come here and do the course in the future.”

I’m really happy that I won the I Pad Air because I’ve never won anything before and having one will be really useful at home as I don’t have a tablet at the moment.”

Marketing Manager Jane Chapman said:

“It was lovely to meet Shanelle and give our lucky competition winner such a great prize, as well as the good advice on her future studies that she received when she came to our Open Event. I always enjoy meeting our potential students when we visit schools, careers events, job fairs and particularly when we hold our own events. I know that coming to college will change their lives for the better.

“We are here for all ages when you need us. Everyone can come to college – school leavers, those looking for university level courses, adults looking to progress or change their careers, study a fun hobby subject, or businesses looking to upskill their workforce.

“Our next Open Event is on Wednesday 11 February – but potential students reading this don’t have to wait until then – they can browse our website and see how we could change their life for the better by coming to Bracknell & Wokingham College in 2015.”
