Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

SGS College Reaches Halfway Point in Ukraine Fundraising Events

South Gloucestershire and Stroud College (SGS) are delighted to have reached the half way point of their fundraising campaign for the Ukraine, with over £5,000 raised so far.

Students and staff have been busy organising a number of brilliant fundraising events including cake sales, face painting, auction of promises, Easter raffle, a 12 hour fitness challenge, and many more. The College Strava challenge team have also covered a distance of 2,156 km, which is roughly the equivalent of travelling to Lutsk in Ukraine. There is just 437 km left to cover until they reach their target destination of Kyiv in Ukraine.

One member of staff, Vic Newport, Assessor for the SGS Sports Academy raised an amazing £1200 for her 12 hours of sponsored live fitness sessions on Friday 25th Match - SGS College are incredibly proud of her.

SGS learner, Mariia Bezkorovaina, is originally from the Ukraine and has family and friends affected by the current crisis

“Thank you very much for your incredible work, understanding, support, and for opening your hearts to the pain of Ukrainians. It's nice to understand that people like you have not stood aside and are helping to raise funds for needy Ukrainians. On my own behalf, I want to say a huge thank you for financial assistance to people from my country.”

SGS is hopeful that with their ongoing campaigning efforts they are on target to raise £10,000 for the Red Cross in Ukraine.
