Students attend Year 9 Motivational Conference
Twenty Year 9 King Harold Academy students attended a Motivational Conference at the Marriott Hotel, Waltham Abbey (November 27).
The aim of the event, funded by the YES Partnership, was to inspire and motivate students, enabling them to access information on careers and pathways to employment.
Students had the opportunity to take part in a variety of activities which included work-related learning workshops, meeting employers and researching careers options for their GCSE courses.
They had an enjoyable and informative day and joined the school's Head of Careers Jaci Hammond, Pastoral Manager Lesley Kennedy, Head of School Kim Thackray and the employers for lunch provided at the Thyme Restaurant.
All students received a certificate of attendance along with a career goal plan for their future learning and studies.
