The exams period has well and truly started. Please be mindful of exams taking place and try to keep a quest atmosphere so that those taking exams can concentrate.
This period can be a stressful time for many, please try to be considerate of students who are revising and trying to complete coursework.
When Hackney Community College and Tower Hamlets College merge this August, both colleges' current names and brands will be kept. Students won't need to move to another campus, and no courses will be closed as a result of the merger.
The continuing corporation will take on a new name. This new name will be for legal purposes and will not affect either college's existing branding.
Please complete this brief online survey to tell us your preferred name for the corporation of the merged college.
The merger of Hackney Community College and Tower Hamlets College has been formally approved by the Boards of both colleges. The two colleges will retain their current names, campuses in each borough, and branding (so our college will still be called Hackney Community College!). The new, merged organisation will be officially formed on 1st August 2016.
There is a firm commitment to maintain a substantial curriculum and student support facilities in each borough into the future, and also to actively seek opportunities to develop specialisms at higher levels.
No courses will close or change location part-way through. You can find more detail about the merger here: http://www.hackney.ac.uk/about/the-college/merger-consultation/
If you have any questions about the merger, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
In our recent Shakespeare in 400 Seconds competition 3 entries were received and the judges, Adam Simon and Michael Marshall Smith said "We admired the narrative rigor and bold graphic presentation of Mariam Haji’s HAMLET. We were struck by the emotional punch of JULIET AND ROMEO, its filmic qualities, and its effective use of music. And we also loved the way in which ROMEO AND JULIET captured both the core beats of the story and also the *fun* of Shakespeare, for both performers and audience — an aspect that is so often forgotten. Each production successfully demonstrates why these works have been enjoyed by so many people for so long, and why they bear constant re-interpretation and reinvention.
This makes it genuinely hard to choose an outright winner, however, and as a result, after much discussion, we would like to award 1st Equal to these three pieces — and offer our congratulations to everyone involved.”
The films will now be shown as part of the Shakespeare in Shoreditch festival both at the festival hub and at special film screenings as follows:
Sat 23rd April, 7PM Romeo and Juliet by Towards Independence prior to Shakespeare in Love
Thurs 28th April, 7PM Hamlet by Mariam Haji prior to Romeo and Juliet
Sat 30th April, 7PM Juliet and Romeo by Vocational Explorer Prior to Macbeth

New Athens logins created
The login for each learner who wants to use eBooks and other resources has been sent to their college email address. If they have any queries, then please ask their RBL facilitator, a member of library staff, or contact me directly on 7288, email@example.com
This login gives all college learners access to academic journals and news; eBooks; paid for resources such as ‘Issues Online’.
The logins should be the college network username and password but with ‘cch’ at the beginning. For example, if a college login is sstudent2 / Pass94 then the Athens login is cchsstudent2 / cchPass94
