’It is important to work hard’, a phrase often used in a primary school. We decided that we wanted to demonstrate the wonderful careers on offer in the locality and that finding something that you enjoy to do and working at it can often turn in to a career. One of the things that we all want for our children is for them to end up doing a job that they love!
During June we invited a number of visitors into our school to talk about what they do. These included...
Tickle Tots - an ecologically responsible reusable nappy company run by Sophia and Jade.
Andy Link from the Riverside Restaurant and Hotel
Dan from Renewable Energy
Emma Gorbutt - Parish Councillor
Will Lewellyn ’Biogas’
Tammy ’Wild Bunch’ florist
Merry Morris - language teacher
Paul Cooper James - musician and composer
Tracy Edwards - Fire Service
Steph - Police Officer
Ryan - Teme Ecology
Mark Gorry - Burroghs Associates - civil and structural engineers
We would like to thank all of the enthusiastic and inspiring visitors for giving up their time to come and talk to the children. Aspirations are certainly running very high at Leintwardine Primary School now!
We also sent a group of our children out to watch the Womens cycling tour’ which rank through Knighton, they were escorted by Mr Womack a keen cyclist and competitor.
Another amazing opportunity was the chance to go to the church during the week to see and hear two musicians who were on a world tour. Caroline Greenwood and Claire Kennedy played flute and harp for us in our own private concert at at Mary Magdalene Church!
Thank you to all involved for arranging these wonderful opportunities.
