We have taken part in a number of careers events in different schools over the last two weeks.
Wendy attended a careers speed-dating session at Stoke Newington School on 30th June. She had a steady stream of inquisitive year 10s asking what she does in her job and whether it is hard work. Some even dared to ask what she earned. She hopes she explained the joys and challenges of being an architect sufficiently to encourage some of them to consider it.
Shane launched William Torbitt Primary School Science Week on 7th July. At morning assembly, he described his very important role as architect of the new school expansion before issuing each year group with a design related challenge to solve in the week ahead.
Dominic wore his best black shirt to the World of Work Day at Earlham Primary School on 9th July. He spoke to the children in years 1-2 about being an architect and answered an endless list of questions from years 3-6. The children were allowed to dress in the attire of their favourite profession – hopefully next year there will be a few more black shirts.
