During the last academic year, we began to run a series of highly successful Working Lunch parties. Due to the overwhelmingly positive student feedback we have continued this monthly event with a series of new and exciting visitors and speakers.
These sessions offer invited students a fantastic opportunity to gather insight into potential future career routes and hear first-hand accounts from successful key figures from various areas of work and industry.
Held in our board room at Chorlton High School, the monthly lunches were developed alongside Jonny Kidd, Director and founder of Media Clarity Ltd, and have enabled the school to host a number of meaningful and empowering meetings. Our students have benefited enormously from the inspiring, and at times incredibly moving, guest presentations, life stories and conversations.
We recently invited Christian Pathak, Professor from Manchester Business School, who presented an inspiring message on the advantages of balancing your passions with hard work, determination and focus to drive yourself and others towards success. Leaving our students with a motivating challenge - to go further, try new things, new hobbies, extra-curricular and enrichment opportunities, and to create their own next ‘big idea’!
