Have you heard about the
Challenge? Just by reading five books over the course of
the school year, you can enter the draw to win a Kindle Fire
tablet or a book voucher!
Pick up a reading diary from
the LRC front counter and, each time you read a book, write
down the details along with a short review (two or three lines)
and bring your diary to the LRC to be stamped. Once you have
read five books, return the diary to the LRC to enter the draw.
You can enter as many times as you like.
Speak to Danielle or Susan in
the LRC if you’d like help finding something to read – all
books are eligible and you can read novels, non-fiction,
poetry, graphic novels, biographies or short stories. We also
welcome your requests and suggestions – if we don’t already
have a book you want to read, we might be able to purchase a
copy for the library. Reading for pleasure is free and an
excellent way to combat stress, improve your vocabulary,
develop empathy and explore new ideas and parts of the world
you might never otherwise encounter.

Did you know that Wandsworth Council offers youth clubs in the local area for students

There is a new printing system in the college! Instead of
choosing a specific printer, you should now select FollowMeQueue. This will
send your print job to a cloud, where it will be held for up to
24 hours or until you release it. To release a print job, you
will need to swipe your ID card at any one of the printers in
the college (just like swiping an Oyster card). If you are in
the LRC, you can collect your card from the front or IT
counters to do this at any time but please bear in mind that,
during busy periods, there may be a queue for the printers - in
this instance, you can use another printer in the
college. Print jobs will be held for 24 hours, so
you can even send your job in the morning and print it off at
the end of the day!
Things to note: After
you select 'print', a confirmation box will pop up confirming
how many print credits you'll be using - you need to click 'OK'
before you can release your job. Your print credits will only be
taken once you release your print job. You can
still cancel your job(s) until then. All printing is
double-sided by default - make sure you select 'single-sided'
if this is your preference. If you require any assistance,
please ask a member of staff or an IT technician.

printing instructions, click here.
LRC Food and
Food and drink (other than
bottled water) are not allowed in the LRC or LRC2 and you must
leave any cold food and drink that you have with you at the
front counter upon entering either of these spaces. Hot food is
not permitted in the LRC at all. We understand that you need
sustenance and are happy to hold your place for up to ten
minutes while you step outside for a break but any student who is caught with
food or drink at their PC or study desk will receive an
incident report and be asked to leave for the rest of the
day. Students who receive multiple incident reports face
Special attention is drawn to the Group Study Room,
which has been left a mess of sweet wrappers, crisps, crumbs
and fizzy drink spills on several occasions recently. Not only
is this against the LRC’s Code of Conduct but it creates an
unpleasant working environment for other students. Please work
with the LRC staff to help us continue to provide the best
possible environment for study.
