A stunning tile mural has been unveiled at Northampton College’s Daventry campus to mark the building’s first birthday.
The display was revealed as part of an Open Event held at the campus on Tuesday, November 21, designed to help prospective students find out more about college life and the courses available to them.
Principal Pat Brennan-Barrett said: “This mural is a true collaboration of creativity, made up of hundreds of individually designed tiles, and is a fitting way to celebrate the first birthday of our state-of-the-art new campus.
“It’s a brilliant piece of work – made by students, staff, local businesses and members of the community.
“We are hugely grateful to everyone who has played their part and contributed not only to the mural but have also made the last 12 months so special for all of us at Daventry.”
A commemorative mural is being launched and unveiled at Daventry Campus on Tuesday (21st November) – part of the college’s one-year birthday celebrations.
Former Northampton College student Kathryn Holmes returned to Booth Lane to give catering students an exclusive insight into what goes on during a food safety inspection.
Now working as a trainee environmental health officer for Birmingham City Council during a ‘sandwich year’ as part of a degree at the University of Wolverhampton, Kathryn returned to her roots to talk to the current students about the importance of food hygiene and explaining the process of inspectors’ visits.
She said: “It was good to be back. It felt strange to be walking back up to the main entrance again after two years away but I really enjoyed it. The students were great and really got involved, asking lots of questions and taking a real interest.
“While I enjoyed learning kitchen skills during my college course I didn’t want to work in kitchens so I’ve taken a different route. I love my job now and I’m keen to explain to the students what they can expect to happen when inspectors visit their premises in the future.
“Chefs are always looking for shortcuts and ways of becoming more efficient but it’s vital they don’t compromise on safety, particularly when public health is at stake.”
