ANZAC Service

On behalf of University of Canterbury Students’ Association, I would like to invite you to our ANZAC Service on Wednesday the 25th of April at 10.00am.

The sense of unity that is widely felt on ANZAC Day is important to acknowledge, and together we can commemorate a day of such special significance to New Zealand, within our community.

All are welcome to attend; for us, this is an important occasion for students, staff and the wider community to come together.

The Service will take place on the Quad between Matariki and Puaka-James Hight Building followed by light refreshments at the Okeover Lawn.

Kind Regards
Josh Proctor
UCSA President

Thursdays in Black relaunch – 22 March

Being safe on campus, in public or in your home is everyone’s right, regardless of your: * race * ethnicity * sexuality * gender identity * class * disability (visible or not) * religious affiliation * political views, and even the way you choose to dress. 

Thursdays in Black is a National student/whānau movement that works towards a world free of rape and violence. #TIB campaigns for campuses to be safe for everyone.

The UCSA has teamed up with the UC Thursdays in Black Society for the 2018 relaunch barbecue. Head down to C-Block lawn from 11.00am on Thursday 22 March for a free sausage, a few tunes and a special  guest speaker.

Come for a chat, with the people dressed in BLACK. They will happily provide information about the campaign and how you can get involved. We want to hear what you want, and give you information about all the  support services available on campus and in the Christchurch area.

Make sure you wear BLACK and come along to be a part of positive change on campus.

International student quiz night – 21 March

Are you a new international student to UC? Or are you an international student who has been here a while? Either way UC and the UCSA would love for you to come along and experience an evening just for you.

Come along to the Kiwiana quiz and catch-up for international students on Wednesday 21 March at 7.00pm, in the Engineering Core. There will be a Kiwiana and global themed quiz, refreshments provided and music. It is a great opportunity to meet your fellow international students.

Members of the UCSA and other clubs will be there to help out, introduce you to the Kiwi culture and answer any questions you might have! We look forward to seeing you next Wednesday for what will be an awesome night. Contact me on international@ucsa.org.nz or come by the UCSA office in the Undercroft if you have any questions, ideas or would like to get involved with all things international at UC.

Your International Rep,
Alex
