Alumnae Help Pupils Navigate Life's Challenges During PSHEE Days

Alumnae Help Pupils Navigate Life's Challenges During PSHEE Days

A huge thank you to our Old Girls who have been into school to support pupils this week.

On Monday, as part of the Upper Sixth PSHEE Day, we welcomed Vicky Cunningham (2018), Rebecca Swan (2001) and Anila Arshad-Mehmood (2009) who took part in a panel discussion about ‘How To Thrive Away From The Hill’.  Students were able to hear and discuss top tips on everything from networking, university life and mental health, to doing what makes you happy.  Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise, the students were hugely grateful.

On Tuesday, our Year 11 were off timetable, attending their PSHEE Day.  To support this day of sessions and activities around ‘What Does My Future Self Need?’, we welcomed Gaby Pickering (2015) and Samantha Kennedy (1991) who introduced the day.  They enjoyed talking about their non-linear career paths, including lots of advice and tips about the world of work.  After this session Hannah Bowman (2002) gave a carousel of sessions around Interview Technique.  This included how to prepare for some of the questions that will be asked.  The Year 11 pupils enjoyed a really informative day and were thankful for the Old Girls giving up their time.
