Student Council Constitution
The Student Council of the Anguilla Community College (ACC) hosts a games evening on one Saturday evening of each month at the Anguilla Community College. The primary game played by attendees is chess. Other games are table tennis and board games. This initiative was devised by ACC’s Student Council President, Junior Neville Hamilton (Hamie) and his team.
Hamie envisioned the games evening as an opportunity for students, faculty, staff and persons from the community, that is, retired nurses, teachers, preachers, businessmen, housewives, construction workers, children and others, to frequent the premises of the Anguilla Community College and “share their experiences and provide guidance and support to those who are in pursuit of professional and personal goals while also having fun.”
The first games evening was held on Saturday 19th December 2015. The chess instructor, Mr. Leonard Telemaque is a teacher at the Morris Vanterpool Primary School. Mr. Telemaque was instrumental in establishing chess clubs within the primary schools some years prior and was excited when approached to conduct a similar venture at the Anguilla Community College.
