Graduating with honours!

So I’ve just recieved my end of year final result from college, and, I’m so proud! I’m happy to say I’m graduating with honours, I got a 2/1, a second class honour! I am so thrilled! What a proud moment this is for us! All our hard work has payed off! I cant believe we did it! There was times during the past year where I wanted to drop out, but I didnt, and now, now I am so happy I stuck it out. My graduation day on april 2nd will be so special. I cant wait to wear the cap and gown and recieve my cert in mental health in the community! What an incredible start to my Monday! This is the best news ever! Am so, so happy right now!

Problem with my results, so frustrated

so now there is a problem with me getting my end of year results from college. it seems my account is blocked, and I cant access my results. It seems the block is on the account since the last time I was in school, which was in 2013. I dont know why its blocked, but I am unable to access the results for my certificate in mental health in the community, so I had to email the fees office and see if they will remove the block. I got an generic email back saying they were very busy and that I should log a student query which I did, but they said then the email would go to my student email address, and I dont know how to access that. So I am just hoping that they’ll see the first email I wrote to them using my personal email account and that maybe they’ll respond to that. I really am unsure why they put a block on my account, as far because as I am aware all fees were payed at the time, even though I dropped out of that course in 2013.

Its annoying, to say the least. I want to know my overall results. I want to know what I got!

I hope they’ll get back to me soon!

That meeting

So the meeting yesterday with the director of adult education was good.

Me and my friend had a lot to talk about with her. There were so many issues we had to bring up.

We had notes, which we read from. And gave her copies of.

She was horrified and very apologetic and said she wished we hadn’t had such a bad experience with the course.

We told her we felt it wasn’t a reflection on the university or the course, but that it was just a reflection on the staff who ran it and organised it.

We read out an email to her that we received, where the coordinator literally told us if we didn’t go to class our fees wouldn’t be payed, you see, the fees were being payed for us. And the coordinator had said you don’t turn up, they wont pay, but it was an empty threat, as the fees were already fully payed up.

My friend Denise said, when we read out that email to her, her face was a picture! She was raging!

She told us that the coordinator would be brought in for questioning! I doubt we’ll find out what happened, but the fact she’s being brought in is good!

I feel the meeting was a success and I am glad we spoke up!

Now perhaps others will have a better experience than I did!

I also spoke up about the accessibility issues I had, and the fact that a lot of the class notes weren’t put up on canvas, and she was again horrified by this.

She said she was going to look into it for me.

She was a lovely girl, very easy to talk to, very approachable.

I’m glad we went and I think it was definitely so worth it to go.

I’ll make my graduation after all, yay

so I found out this afternoon, that my graduation from college is on April 2nd, at 2 PM. That is great. It means I will make the ceremony. Its on a thursday.

I am so thrilled to be able to attend it. We havent officially been told yet, but at the meeting me and my friend went to this afternoon, the girl we spoke with was able to tell us when the graduation would be.

So its great news! Now at least I know I’ll be there, wearing the cap and gown and graduating. My overall results arent out yet, but they will be soon. I think I’ve gotten a 2/1 which is a second class honour.

An important meeting

I have a very important meeting this afternoon. I’m super anxious about it.

I am going to the local university,to meet the director of adult education to discuss my complaints I had with the college course I did last year.

I had complaints with the coordinator, and there were also access issues with canvas, and I am trying to appeal one of my grades.

My friend Denise is also meeting them with me. We’re hoping that the director will be able to do something about the coordinator. She was very bad about getting back to us, she never answered emails or texts in a timely manner, and she gave us very little support when it came to the course work etc.

Hopefully it will all go well. Either way, I’ll have said my piece. Thats all I wanted, was to be able to say what my issues were, and get it out there.

If anythings done about it after that, its a bonus.

I got an A on my 3rd module!!

The results of my 3rd module are up on canvas. We had four modules in total for our course. The 3rd one I just finished in late October. For that module, I had to do a poster presentation and a learner log which was 800 words in length. I chose to do my poster presentation on friendly call and on isolation and loneliness, and I did my learner log on what it was like to work on friendly call. I just checked my result and I got an A for both the presentation and I also got an A for my learner log!
I am so very proud of myself! I put in a lot of work into both the presentation and learner log!
That means I will get a 1-1 first class honour in the overall course, as I have all A’s in the 3 modules, and I am hoping this last presentation I did today, for the fourth and final module, I am hoping to get an A on that too!
What a great way to end the night! I can go to bed happy! I am so elated!
This is the best news ever!

Presentation time at college

I have been working all morning on my presentation for college, which I will give on Saturday. Its finally done now. I have to give a presentation which is worth 75 percent of my grade for the module we’re doing, the presentation has to target a specific audience, and we have to use narrative to engage the audience. I am doing mine on depression and my target audience is teens. I used a case study and some research and stats to engage the audience. I also discussed the symptoms and causes of depression, and treatment options. I think the finished product looks good, if I do say so lol. I hope I’ll get a good grade. There is another part to the assignment, we must write a 600 word learner log, which is worth 25 percent of the grade. I havent done that yet though. I’m pretty proud that I got the presentation finished. I was worrying about it. I’m so ready for college to be done. On saturday I’ll be finally done. Yay! I am so excited. Its been a tough year. There was a lot of work in the course. I am glad I did it. I am proud I finished it and will graduate soon and get a certificate in mental health in the community.
