As you will be aware, STEM (Science Technology Engineering Maths) is a real passion of mine and something that I believe separates Kingsway from other educational establishments. We are constantly building on our successes, which have been recognised by the Museum of Science & Industry and in Parliament, by embracing opportunities to link with local businesses and industries.
Eric Wright is one of our STEM Ambassadors who come in to school to work with our students. Eric is an Electronics Control Engineer and his 50 years experience in industry has taken him to many countries around the world. He spoke to Mr Nicolaou’s GCSE Electronics students about career opportunities in Electronics, and then moved onto concepts and principles such as communication systems, control, and programming. He brought in project kits and at the end, he was so touched by the warm welcome and respect from our children, that he left all of his kit for Mr Nicolaou to help enhance students’ knowledge. He is true gentleman with a wealth of knowledge and someone we look forward to making stronger links with.
Finally, I would like to say a huge well done to the hundreds of students who received a postcard from me congratulating them on their achievement over the Spring term, performing at or above their ambitious targets across of all their subjects. This achievement is a testament to their hard work and I am very proud of them all.
Keep up the hard work and have a good week everyone,
