South Thames College engineering student Regina Tumblepot is Crossrail's Apprentice of the Year. At the award ceremony at the Houses of Parliament on Tuesday Regina won two awards.
Regina took home the Apprentice of the Year and Trade Apprentice Award. She was nominated for her work on the building platform tunnels at the new Whitechapel Crossrail station with contractor BBMV. Co-workers dubbed her "a phenomenal find", "a stand-out individual" and "an inspiration to all the apprentices."
Number 23, South Thames College's student band, sang to a one thousand strong audience at the prestigious Royal Festival Hall last night. Songs included Mystery, one written, arranged and directed by the students themselves.
Vocalist and student Ella Howell said "The performance was an amazing experience. I've never played at such a large venue. It has encouraged me to pursue my career in music. We were really nervous before the performance, but once we completed our set, we wanted to get back on the stage again."
The music department at the College is successful and names Miss Dynamite as a past pupil. Students from the music department compete in national competitions and in recent years won the World Skills UK competition in 2010 and were runners up in 2011.
