Freshers Fair at Queen Elizabeth School Hexham
A great day at the Freshers Fair of the Queen Elizabeth High School in Hexham. Good chats with lots of the students and teachers. We help lots of the local students with work experience throughout the year and two of last years helpers came along to explain the idea to the students.
Tried to float the idea of a debating competition between the 4 High Schools next spring with the winning team coming to the House of Commons - think it has a good chance of happening, which all agreed would be great.
Also had the chance to meet everyone from the amazing History Society, to my friends at the Hexham Community Partnership, Tynedale Hospice, the Abbey and the local Air Cadets.
Well done to the school for organising such a good day
