St Brendan's Speakezee Schools Event

St Brendan's Speakezee Schools Event

On monday Sept 4th, St Brendan's invited us in to inspire their new 6th Form student intake as part of our outreach state schools programme. Here's what Hetty Brown, Coordinator of Gifted and Talented Scheme. 

"Speakezee organised a phenomenal hour of exciting and engaging talks for 120 Year 12 students to set the tone for their A level first year. The graduate student speakers enthralled us on topics ranging from polar exploration and research, to vet science and the way the human hand can tell us things about Human societies. It was fun-packed and full of wonderful intellectual energy pitched just right for our students. There was also a lot of really helpful advice about resilience and how to use perseverance and passion to achieve your goals. I can’t recommend Speakezee highly enough as a way of exciting students about University study."
