Fife care experienced students get bags of support from college to help with studies
Care experienced students at Fife College have received rucksacks containing advice and free items to help them in their studies.
The bags were prepared as part of the college’s drive to provide students from a care or looked-after background with as much support as possible, especially given that fewer of them have been on campus due to the coronavirus restrictions.
A total of 430 bags were handed out by the college with a value of over £13,000, which were then filled with items such as notepads, pens, post-its and sanitary products for female students.
Ryan Abbott, a student who received one of the rucksacks said: “I was really pleased when I heard these bags were available for us to pick up from the college.
“The college is always trying to do what they can to support us and these bags are another example of them giving us a helping hand.”
