Student Ambassadors' Dinner 2017

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

On Tuesday 9 May, students, tutors and staff came together for the 2017 Student Ambassadors’ Dinner, held to thank members of college who work with schools and prospective applicants for their dedication and hard work throughout the past year.

Our Student Ambassador scheme has been running for a number of years now, with well over a hundred current Christ Church students serving as Ambassadors for their college. Our Ambassadors are the public face of the college to prospective students, delivering tours, Q&As and workshops about student life at Christ Church during Open Days, admissions rounds, and visits from school groups. Their help is invaluable to all of the work of college staff involved in access and outreach, including our two student Access Reps, Access and Outreach Officer, Admissions Administrator, and Tutor for Admissions. The dinner is intended both as a thank you for all of the Ambassadors’ hard work throughout the year, and also as a celebration of the college’s commitment to widening access and participation for bright young people regardless of their background.

It was a night of farewells, as we said goodbye to our two outgoing Access Reps, Tony Diver (second-year History and Politics) and James Tricker (third-year Physics), as well as our Access and Outreach Officer, Lynton Lees, who will soon be leaving us to return to graduate study. We also welcomed our new incoming Access Reps, Joshua Cathcart (second-year English) and Genevieve Athis Mcalea (first-year History). We wish Tony, James and Lynton all the best for the future, and look forward to the Ambassador programme going from strength to strength under Josh and Genevieve’s leadership!

Many thanks to Sally Boardman, our Admissions Administrator, for all her hard work organising last night’s event.
