SHOUT welcomes new SHU OT students at pre-enrolment day
It's September... It can only mean one thing.... SHOUT is back!
But before we all head back to the books, there's still time for some fun. Yesterday we enjoyed spending the morning welcoming 60 new Sheffield Hallam L4 occupational therapy students at their pre-enrolment day.
Talking to groups of 20 students at a time for about 40 minutes, we first got to know each other with ice breakers (all non-scary, we promise!) before explaining about SHOUT and its role as a local group of the Trent Region British Association of Occupational Therapy (BAOT). We look forward to seeing our new peers at our upcoming monthly Wednesday night talks designed to support CPD, and hope they will join us as members of the SHOUT team in the future.
But there was more! Each student grabbed a green stripy SHOUT goodie bag as they left, filled with sweets, information and BAOT freebies. After all, it wouldn't be a SHOUT event without an I OT badge!
Good luck on your first day L4s! SHOUT is YOUR student group, so don't be afraid to ask us any questions or directions on campus when you see us around.
Our first event is a talk on spirituality by Chris Mayers at 6pm on Wednesday 2nd October in the Robert Winston Building - we'll be emailing you details during your first week.
See you soon!
