College Life

The College isn't just about courses, it's about people. We hold various charitable activities and other extra-curricular activities, events or occurrences at the College, which we will highlight in this section.

The following video was made by Mr Pereira and his students for our Christmas Concert:

Introduction by Miss Nicola Howes, Young Enterprise Coordinator (ag)

"All young people should be given the best chance for a rewarding future in work and life – no matter where they start their journey". This is Young Enterprise’s mission statement, which very much resonates with the ethos in our Gibraltar College.

Young Enterprise empowers young people to harness and develop their employability skills, as well as personal and business skills. Whilst academic achievement is important, Young Enterprise helps students develop skills required to succeed in the workplace. For example, 81% of students stated that the Company programme helped them develop confidence in their ability and 74% agreed it helped improve their communication and cultivate resilience.

Garden of Thoughts (A Collection of Works on Mental Health)The world seems to on many occasions focus on the harm and negative effects of mental health on society, especially our young. Much is said statistically; cold clinical studies are made; and at times headline grabbing news items are reported carelessly and thoughtlessly. Yet, has anyone truly listened? Have many asked those experiencing mental health issues, for a true and sincere insight into their world? Do many of us even truly understand, or grasp the full picture against the backdrop of growing stigma and increasingly scaremongering media coverage that blurs our reasoning and shuts our eyes? In a world that often seems to favour shock value over real value, one hopes the following will provide a welcome respite and a more dignified connection with mental health issues and those who speak about it so strongly and eloquently.

Introduction by Mrs Vanessa Saccone-Recagno, Student Services Coordinator

This year we are celebrating our 6th Award Ceremony, probably our favourite event in the College’s calendar, and, I am sure other members of staff will agree with me, one which fills us with pride to be a working at the Gibraltar College.  The aim of the Award Ceremony is not just to praise academic achievement, as that is already catered for in August when students receive their results, but to recognize and celebrate the hard work and commitment that the students of the Gibraltar College have demonstrated in their studies.

This could not have been done without the support of the staff and the continuous    generosity of the Gaggero Foundation, to whom we are extremely grateful.
