All students at Greenfield Community College have faced unprecedented challenges during recent months; it is inspiring to see how individuals have overcome obstacles and developed learning through these new opportunities. It is also good to see how Year 11 students are carving out future opportunities for themselves with support from expert teaching staff.
Careers lead, Mr. Tait has been continuing to support students in their career choices and has been tracking destinations and offering advice and resources to help students make the best choices for the future.
It is wonderful to see so many students furthering their education, finding relevant training or employment and finding ways to build on their current achievements and progress made at Greenfield.
Students such as Year 11 Sydney who has been offered a wonderful opportunity to study and play soccer in the US; Kaitlin who is intending to study Veterinary Nursing at East Durham College.
Matthew and Paige who are following their dreams as they continue their love of performing arts and Joe who is furthering his musical studies. Three performers who will a big miss in future Greenfield Shows where they were previously key players. We wish them and every student every success for the future.
Students across the school have also had the opportunity to work alongside mentors as part of the Future First initiative which encourages alumni to support current students and help them explore their next steps. The programme gives a unique insight into professional roles and a range of employment opportunities. The mentor scheme has been inspirational for Greenfield students. Former students who have kindly shared their experience and inspired current students include Jemma Cheetham Senior Management Accountant who left Greenfield in 2007 and HR Manager, Jonathan Robinson who left Greenfield in 2006. A valuable contribution to help students realise their potential.
Greenfield is committed to meeting the needs of each and every student and supporting them to access their next steps.
