Sanlam Bank Loan to radiography formal for 3rd years. Cupcake sales and penny cans for fundraising to help with financing 3rd year farewell and lower amount of house fees. 

· Gerbrandt Viviers (Physiotherapy)

If the treasurer of your Sub house does not want to always drive to Roosmaryn to hand in documents they can scan and email them. This will make it more convenient, especially with green forms. 

Physios have a cycle group doing the 94.7. Can be fun to make it a Health House thing. Doing this for charity towards Huis Abraham Kriel. 

Just a mention – Interhouse potjiekos competition.

Next week is East London Student Forum for Universities with Nursing Sciences. Honours students will have presentation.

Prof Ace was diagnosed with Cancer, students and staff leaving messages in honor of her. 

Nursing students working with CANCA as volunteers, maybe next year they will do it again.

Rene’ suggested that to ensure no clashes of meetings in the committee room there should be a diary available where bookings can be made in.
