Sher­iff rounds up chil­dren for work week

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - REMEMBER WHEN? -

THE High Sher­iff of Kent was pre­sented as a pos­i­tive role model to girls at an Ash­ford pri­mary school.

Ham­street Pri­mary School in­vited Amanda Cot­trell to talk to pupils as part of their World of Work week which gives chil­dren an in­sight into dif­fer­ent jobs and why peo­ple need to work.

Many pro­fes­sion­als have been show­cased in­clud­ing fire­fight­ers, au­thors, en­gi­neers, ar­chi­tects, and nurses, who have all vis­ited the school.

The school even linked up with a marine bi­ol­o­gist in the USA via we­b­cam.

“The High Sher­iff of Kent vis­ited as we par­tic­u­larly wanted to profile women in pro­fes­sional life to raise ca­reer ex­pec­ta­tions of girls in school,” said head teacher Jane Macey.
