Graduation

Student Solutions: Results and Graduation

If you know someone who has finished university, sixth form or their GCSE exams, then you will truly understand the happiness that summer can bring. They no longer spend days curled in a ball worrying about upcoming exams, instead they are free to celebrate and spend much-needed time with friends and family. After months of stress, new-found freedom can be strangely daunting so make sure to help the student you know explore, relax and move forward.

The little white and yellow liquid ball of protein is one of the oldest foods chosen by humans to nourish and satisfy us. I’m talking about the egg of course. We don’t really know whether it came before the chicken or not, but what we do know is it has become a valuable part of our breakfast, lunch and sometimes dinner. It’s safe to say that the egg is a cornerstone of the British culinary catalogue.

3 Famous Fathers to celebrate this Father’s Day
