Interview an Adult Competition Y7

Y7 have been taking part in the Interview an Adult Competition and today has seen the culmination of the task with our finalists presenting to Mrs Huddart, Mr Irving and Mrs Harrison. The first task was set just before Christmas and Y7 were asked to sit down with a member of their family or another adult close to them and ask them about their career journey. The students asked their chosen adult a series of questions including what their least favourite job was and why, had covid changed their job and what advice would they give their 11 year old self. The answers then were used to submit a reflective report and the top 10 reports submitted were chosen and those students ask to put together a presentation and share what they had learned with members of the Senior Leadership. Well done to those 10 Y7’s and to all and entered and took part.
