And now, the Church of England primary says, in a press release, that it is searching for successful ex-pupils willing to come into school to talk to students about what they do and how they got there.
The school are looking for ex-pupils with ‘aspirational careers’: perhaps you’ve got to the top of your field in business, sport or music. Maybe you’re a lawyer or a policeman; a musician touring the world with a band; run one of the town’s amazing small businesses.
Or perhaps you’re an athlete, a teacher, hotel manager, gym instructor, PR consultant, computer game designer, vlogger, coder, artist or actor. The list of successful jobs goes on and on…
The school’s innovative Secrets of Successful People Week will run across the week starting February 5 and former pupils with aspirational careers will be taking time out of their busy lives to spend a short time with Holy Cross students to show them just what can be achieved in life and offer encouragement to chase their dreams.
Headteacher at Holy Cross, Mrs Cathy Dart said: “Our school motto is ‘The First for Dreams’ and we’ve introduced our Secrets of Successful People Week in school to show our students that their aspirations and dreams can be achievable, show them that shooting for the stars is within their reach and possible for everyone.”
“We already have some wonderful ex-pupils lined up to talk to the children. But we’d love loads more so we can show our children the possibilities life after Holy Cross has to offer them.”
