What is your story?

A call-out to ‘experts’ in our local community.

What is your story?

At HMS, we would like to invite our community of parents, carers and friends to contribute to our pupils learning. We are on the look-out for adults with a particular skill or expertise who would be willing to share with our children. Are you one of them? Or do you know someone with a particularly fascinating job or skill? We are keen for willing, inspirational people to share a 5-15 minute recording with us. This would be a pre-recorded talk or activity and a little bit about the journey you took into your career. It would also be wonderful to hear from alumni from HMS and QEHS.

You might be a biologist, film-maker, an artist, sports person or a milliner. The prerequisite is that you are passionate about the work you do and you want to share this path with our young people. We are hoping to inspire pupils and help them become more aware about the possible journey’s into the world of work. We foresee imaginations running wild, and possible collaborations, as pupils make connections between school learning and the wider world context. We want to start this project locally, with professionals from a wider-reach contributing later down the line.

If you are passionate about what you do, and would like to share your story please contact Miss Lawton – slawton@hexhammiddle.org.uk We are looking forward to hearing from you.
