Half Time - November and December Update

What have I done this term?

  •        Freshers’ Week, where I ensured that information on club trials went into every Fresher's welcome pack.
  •        Held an AU AGM which elected an Executive of 9 members
  •        Chaired 3 AU Exec meetings
  •        Club Officer, Welfare Officer and First Aid training
  •        Allocated grants
  •        Attended BUCS meetings
  •        Arranged GoodGym partnership
  •        Ran Mission: Nutrition and This Girl Can campaigns
  •        Recruited for two roles
  •        Attended the first working group on tackling initiations
  •        Elected as the BUCS student regional chair for the North East, meaning I report back to the national Advisory group on the North East updates.
  •       Overseen the first term of BUCS fixtures, and seen Newcastle rise one place up to 9th in the BUCS table.
  •        Attended Sexual Assualt Disclosure training conducted by the Truth Project and Survivor's Trust.

What has been your biggest achievement?

My biggest achievement has been coordinating a relationship between the SU and GoodGym, a charity who combine exercise with doing good deeds. Our first 'mash-up' reached a record turnout for Newcastle GoodGym at 52 attendees. This is now a monthly occurence and is hugely popular with the attendees, as well as being a massive aid to our own volunteering projects.

What could you have improved on?

I think I could have provided some more options for engagement in my Mission: Nutrition Campaign and also made some more headway on my manifesto points, but as term 1 has been so busy, this will be a priority for me next term.

What do you plan to do next term?

  •        Plan AU Ball
  •        Plan and conduct ‘Give it a Go Sport Campaign
  •        Look into BUCS ‘Does You Good’ Campaign
  •        Collate Nutrition Campaign feedback into a report
  •        Attend BUCS Nationals as a volunteer/spectator
  •        Reevaluate manifesto points and start to action
