Inspiring Imagination across the Curriculum

It was a day of inspirational teaching and learning on Friday 18 September at Rastrick High School.

Former students from all over the UK put their day jobs on hold to return to the classroom to inspire current students through promoting the opportunities that can arise from hard work and commitment to their studies. The excellent role models focused RHS students on the importance of getting the best out of school and the impact this has on your ability to follow your dreams.

Returning students who are studying hard at University in a wide range of subjects such as Primary Education, Secondary Education – specialising in PE and Drama, Radiography, Theatre, Nursing, Strength and Conditioning Coaching and Social Work, were also joined by ex-students who are now managers, leaders and entrepreneurs.

Following a welcome breakfast with staff and Sixth Form Students, former students lead/supported sessions of innovative teaching and learning activities across all departments. These sessions covered all areas of the curriculum in creative and exciting ways.

Mr Evans, “Today has given our students the opportunity to meet inspirational young people, who worked hard, had a clear idea of what they wanted to achieve and very importantly had the courage to go for it. I can think of no better exercise in reinforcing the importance of hard work, dedication and a good education. It has been a very memorable day for all of the Rastrick team and is definitely something we want to repeat next year.”
