Inspiration & Confidence

Ray Blk inspired

Following the visit of our very successful former student Ray Blk last half term we received a special guest invite to a high level event in Central London.

Giovanni Wright Williams, Shanice Oulai and Clarissa Ragrag were all invited to the Youtube Space in Kings Cross. Ray had specifically identified these students as she felt they were inspiring when she met them. They were treated to a performance from Ray, including the launch of her new song, a panel with a question and answer session and some fun immersive experiences such as an opportunity to recreate the album artwork with Ray. We are very grateful to Ray for being so loyal to Bonus Pastor and we continue to support and follow her career.

 

Ada Lovelace Day

Thank you to Miss Hill for organising and facilitating the inspiring Ada Lovelace event. Our year 9 girls heard incredibly humble and honest stories from our special guests;

Caroline Wright – Director General of British Educational Suppliers Association and Director of EdTech Exchange, Alex Gordon-Furse – Director of Partnerships at Startup Grind , Stefania Manfra – Midwife, Chiedza Mudereri – Project Manager at Surrey County Council and Lecturer at Kingston University

The messages of resilience and self- belief were threaded through their remarkable stories and we thank our guests for taking the time to visit our students who were incredibly engaged and left feeling inspired.
