 Push Post: Student Newsletter

 APRIL 2020


Hey there <<First Name>>! 

We're well into our 'new normal' and finding ourselves in a countrywide lockdown, all of us doing our bit and staying in the house (which I never thought we'd be getting praise for!) and having to queue outside to go into any shops.

However it is you're keeping yourself busy and entertained while you're schooling from home it's important to make sure you're spending your time effectively and keeping up to date with the information on your future and what's going to happen with your grades and applications.

Luckily Push are here to help you out with that and push you in the right direction.

And remember everyone. Keep safe. Stay at home.

Don't forget, we've also got our #minutemotivations which Aron, Moj or Ibz are posting each day for students, on Insta, and each weekend we're loading these online as a weekly compilation to our youtube channel. Week's 1-3 are online now.

If you can’t wait for the next newsletter why not check out our archives here. We'll see you soon.
