Conisborough College has had the pleasure of welcoming some prestigious guests this term to talk to our young people about their journeys to success.

Chris Barnham 1On Wednesday 13 February, we were pleased to welcome Lewisham Cabinet member for School Performance and Children's Services, Councillor Chris Barnham, to meet with staff and students.

Councillor Barnham met with a small group of Year 11 students for a great Q&A session. The group chatted away for much longer than was scheduled, but students were pleased to have the opportunity to talk about local community issues and the opportunities and resources offered to them in school and in the community.

Julie A1On Monday 11 March, Year 10 students had the pleasure of a truly inspirational talk from Apple Music's - Beats1 DJ Julie Adenuga.
Julie Adenuga took time out of her extremely busy schedule to talk to Year 10 students about her journey to success as well as engaging with
the students about their life aspirations, the future and their career choices. She even gave the students a 'down to earth' lesson on paying taxes. A big thank you to Julie for her time and for breaking down Brexit in a way that everyone could understand!

 

Damien Egan Group PicFinally, this term we have been honoured to welcome Damien Egan, the Mayor of Lewisham.  On Friday 22 March the newly elected Mayor of Lewisham, along with Deputy Head of Colfe's; Donna Graham met with our young people and enjoyed a morning listening to our Gospel Choir as well as attending some art classes which were taking place in our Progress Resource Base and finished off with a Q&A session with our Year 7 students where topics included local amenities, opportunities for young people, knife crime and pollution.

Damien Egan 2We would like to thank Damien Egan for his time, we hope you enjoyed your visit, our students and staff certainly did.

Mrs J. Hadlow - Headteacher
