A Message from President Lauren
Due to events over the weekend, UCanDance would like to share our condolences with everyone and hope that you have safe and helpful support networks around you. We understand that some people may not be feeling like turning up to dance this week, which is absolutely fine - take your time to rest and recover, and don't be afraid to talk to those around you if you need. Stay safe and be well, each and every one of you is awesome and a valued part of our club <3
If you do need support, there are a number of resources available, both through the university and outside. Some of these include:
• Lifeline: 0800 543 354 (available 24/7)

AGM and 2017 Committee
The UCanDance Annual General Meeting is coming up on Monday 10th October (instead of usual classes). This is your chance to
put yourself forward to join the committee for 2017. Being on the committee is great if you enjoy organising events and
developing your teamwork, communication and leadership skills. It also looks great on your CV.

The last week of term is a busy one at UCanDance. On Monday (10th October) we will have the AGM, on Wednesday (12th October) it is the Annual Chocolate Giveaway, so save the date if you love chocolate and dancing (who doesn't?!). We will finish off the year with an epic End of Year Party at Riccarton High on Saturday 15th October.
