Dreamcatcher assembly- Mr Mark Lewis
The children at Roebuck were treated to a Dream catcher assembly from Thomas Alleynes Headteacher Mr Mark Lewis on Thursday. As well as answering the questions from the Year 6 children Mr Lewis shared some insight into what his ambitions were when he was younger as well as talking about his first ever job, which was a trolley attendant at Sainsburys. When he was younger, Mr Lewis had ambitions to be a war journalist but soon realised that to become this he would have to spend some time reporting on more mundane events such as village fetes and local events so he turned his sights onto teaching, where he became one of the youngest Headteachers in the country when he took over at Thomas Alleynes school. To finish off with Mr Lewis shared some of the things that he said employers would be looking for when they interviewed people, these were: good literacy and maths skills, manners and being able to work well as a member of a team.
The children responded well with some good questions and a couple had this to say afterwards: "To get a good job you will have to work hard at school because you need to learn the skills to get the job you would like." Josh Year 5
"I have learnt that to achieve your goal you have to work hard and keep persevering. Never give up." Vanessa Year 5
