VUWSA

“I ain’t never seen @MarlonCDrake at a club, or doing activities!” — @markyman90.

Well shit, @markyman90, that’s quite a twitter beef you’re starting there. But seeing as I haven’t exactly publicised what I’m up to, and I haven’t been in town for a while, I figured this is a good opportunity to give you an update what’s been keeping me busy.

The last couple of months have been a blast. On the activities side of things, being a part of our Living Wage Day on May 10 in the Hub was a highlight. The atmosphere was charged, and we had brilliant engagement from students and staff who all supported a living wage for those working at VUW. The Living Wage at Vic movement is one I am immensely proud of and am fortunate enough to have played my humble part in. Our work is not done yet! Keep an eye out for the movement and how you can get involved.

On the clubs side of things, I’ve happily attended a bunch of club events with members of the VUWSA team to see what our campus clubs are getting up to, and have begun to look at how VUWSA can help out. This has included a French Society Breakfast just downstairs in Room 219 of the Student Union Building, to the VUW Athletics Club’s University Relays all the way out in Paekakariki. We provided a marquee for the relays which is a perfect example of one of the ways VUWSA can help. If you want us at your event, just slide me an email!

Behind the scenes, the Clubs Council have chosen our three goals for the year and split off into working groups, making sure VUWSA is going to provide for clubs this year. Presidents, keep an eye out for resources as the year progresses.

Colleagues, if you haven’t joined a club already, it’s never too late!

: - SPONSORED - As a Pākehā kid, when I first learnt to mihi, I found that building a sense of my own whakapapa was a kind of patchwork, something I could stitch together by pulling threads from family stories. The waka I chose, or borrowed from my father, was called the Wanganel
