Dream catcher Mark Lewis
Today we had a dream catcher assembly with Mr Lewis, who is the headteacher at The Thomas Alleynes Secondary School. He also works closely with our school. He explained to us that being a Head Teacher is not just about sitting around in a dull office doing nothing, he told us that all his days are different and exciting. For example, he and students have been on a number of trips to different areas in different countries- Russia, France/Paris and Greece.
Mr Lewis was born in Stevenage, but grew up in Biggleswade, as a child. When Mr Lewis was a child he went to Lodge Farm Primary school and Highfield secondary school. Also, when he was younger he wanted to be a history teacher and journalist. As he wanted to be a history teacher he had to study all subjects at school. He told us that he loves his job and couldn’t ask for a better one.
He left the children with a nugget of wisdom which was,‘Have a go at everything and be courageous’.
