Mince pies and mulled wine

The College is hosting a mince pie with mulled wine get together for SCR members and Pendle’s JCR Exec team on Thursday, 14th December in the Sitting Room, Pendle Rooms (above Pendle Bar). We would be delighted to see you if you want to call in between 4pm and 5pm on Thursday. Could you let Jill know if you are coming along so we can make sure we have sufficient seasonal goodies!

Debating Team 2017

In 2016 the Lancaster Debating Union and the Colleges organised the first Intercollegiate Debating Competition. First year participants are able to take part in speech and debating training from both the Debating and Public Speaking Society to develop their skills. This year the College was represented by Adam Rowling, Khulat Hashmi, Jasdeep Sigh, Himani Pursnani Pursnani, John Kinson and Archie Atkinson. The first debating competition took place on Monday, 13th November and the motion was This House Believes That STEM subjects should be the main focus of curriculum in secondary schools. Pendle opposed this motion and contributed excellent points for discussion and irrefutable arguements. The team lost out to Fylde College by a mere two marks. All enjoyed the experience and received a Pendle t-shirt and mug in recognition of their efforts!

 

University Challenge Quiz Team

Jo, Cian, Jess and Isabel won their two preliminary matches for Pendle College. Ethan and Annabel ably in the wings to step up should a team member be unavailable. The semi-finals will be held in Week 13 and location of times will be published in Lent Term. The teams always enjoy SCR support.
