The Student Association by Kian West


After months of silently supporting Newcastle Mirage, February seems like the best month to return the favour and highlight the amazing work that the Student Association does in Newcastle and the greater Hunter/Central Coast.  You may have noticed over the past few months their full page advert in our zine, they have also been graciously assisting with some incredible prices on printing - if you have any printing needs we definitely recommend them, going above and beyond to make sure our fresh little print is top quality every month and in a fantastic time frame also. ISSUE_9_SAIf you need booklets, A4 or A3 prints done, check them out: or visit the bookshop on the Newcastle Campus of Hunter TAFE in Tighes Hill – Block S, Maitland Rd. The really interesting thing about the Student Association is that they are open for all people to become members, so you don’t need to be studying at Hunter TAFE to profit from their incredible membership option. For just $10 you get a cute little welcome bag with a diary, notepad, pens and a bottle of water, plus a 10% discount off every product they sell including printing, and on top of that they work closely with other businesses to send out exclusive invitations each month including: cheap concert/festival tickets, discounts at other shops, exclusive entry to events, and even volunteer and professional opportunities. As a charity organisation, the Student Association exists to benefit members so they are constantly looking for new additions to their indisputably fantastic offering. If you need advocacy, assistance, or just simply steering in the right direction, the Student Association could be the door you need to knock on today. Plus right now they are taking applications to sit on the board of Directors, an amazing opportunity to voice an opinion on the future direction of the Student Association (and it’ll look great on your resume!).
