Following our second, very sucessful Believe and Achieve day here at St Francis' I am delighted to be able to upload some audio files from the children and people who supported us explaining all about the day, its aims and hopeful outcomes.
This year we were delighted that so many businesses chose to support us. Our thanks go out to:
University of Sunderland
Dickens and Dees
Sunderland Software Solutions
Darlington Building Society
Bishop Auckland College
We would just like to say "THANK YOU" to them all. All pupils thoroughly enjoyed the "collapsed curriculum" week where they learnt all about inspiring and talented artists, athletes, business entrpeneurs, scientists etc They were given time to really think about the skills and attributes that they will need to be successful in the workplace and had, by the time Thursday came, come up with a wide range of interesting and thought provoking questions. All in all, a great success and one which we really hope to "do again" next year.
