OUSA Peer Support Recruitment

Do you want to help out others?? The Peer Support Programme is a voluntary assistance program, which is designed to assist you with any concerns you have regarding your personal or study life. Peer Supporters offer support based on the principals of listening, sharing experiences and having an equal relationship rather than providing expert or clinical advice. If you are interested in using the peer support service or if you would like to become a peer supporter yourself, come in and see us at OUSA Student Support or email us help@ousa.org.nz

Rubbish Skips 23 March

Skips will be out on Friday 23 March, from 9am to 4pm so you can get rid of the stuff you can’t put in your black bags or recycling bins. If the skip located closest to your flat is full, please take your rubbish to another skip at these locations.

If you can, it’s probably best to get rid of your rubbish before 3.30pm, as skips taken away to be emptied towards the end of the collection period may not be replaced with a new skip.

By now you probably know all about the DCC rubbish collection service requirements but just take a minute to refresh your memory. Non-DCC rubbish bags will not be collected.

Thanks for your help keeping the campus beautiful.
