Dear all,

It’s Movember and the time for change is now. As a part of Generation Moustache, Rob, Rogerio , George and Jerry are joining me in committing our faces to the cause and willbe growing moustaches for the entire month of November to raise funds and awareness for men’s health.

I’d like you to support us and our passion with a donation, as we fight the good fight for men’s health. You can donate to me by:

1. Donating online at:

A word from the Magazine Team
Hey guys! As many of you will be aware, it’s time to submit your entries for the college magazine. The magazine is an event run entirely by students and it will be on sale during the Christmas revue. We hope you’ll all be champing at the bit to entertain everyone with your wonderful entries but if you’re having second thoughts about writing for the magazine, here’s some reasons as to why it’s a great project!
Not only will it help a great deal with your application to university, when it’s finished and edited it looks fantastic! It’s a professionally published and it’s great to see your work in all the glory it deserves. Also, the magazine goes around the world. Quite literally. It’s used as a promotional tool for the college and for many of us students here at Ashbourne, one of the first impressions we got of the college was the magazine. It definitely inspired us to want to exhibit our creative joys and hopefully we can trigger the same reaction in many prospective students in countries as far as Vietnam.

You can write about practically anything you want (within reason, naturally). Feel free to say what’s on your mind. Just send your entries to Because we need to have the magazine published for the revue, the deadline for entries is Thursday 28th November. Feel free to send in entries asap though!
Also, it doesn’t have to be a completely independent project, you can submit old coursework’s/projects/homeworks/stories etc that you may have stored on your laptops. Just think that small poem you once wrote that you never thought meant much will finally get the recognition it deserves.
Here are our sections:

The Arts (Artwork, fashion, drawings, photography, drama..)Humanities (english, philosophy, history, politics, creative writing..)Sciences (psychology, biology, physics, chemistry..)Lighter side of Life (reviews, comedy, hobbies, miscellaneous)
