Chapter 5 Role Model Day

What do you get when you cross a biomedical scientist, a Doctor, a technology developer, an auditor and a global event manager? The answer – inspirational and fascinating ‘Role Model day!’

Chapter 5 students were delighted to welcome a wide variety of role models from the world of work into school on Friday. These fabulous role models spoke to the children about their experiences in each career and shared advice about the subjects and skills they would need to develop for anyone wishing to follow in their footsteps.

Among the speaker was Ms Sholicar, a technology developer who was instrumental in rolling out 40,000 ipads in the banking industry. Mrs Mannion spoke about her role in accountancy and auditing, sharing some of the incredible companies she worked with – including Chester Zoo! Dr She also shared her experiences of apprenticeships. Dr Brophy gave a fascinating, jaw-dropping talk about her role as a neonatologist, taking care of new born babies in Liverpool Women’s hospital. Mrs Gray spoke about she travelled the world as an events manager, setting up conferences, concerts, festivals, fashion shows, Olympic events and exhibitions. Finally, Dr Awais spoke about his role as an academic -working on the pursuit of knowledge and on new scientific discoveries. Dr Awais spoke about his role in the Department of Molecular and Clinical Cancer Medicine as he travels the world presenting the technology he invented, to visualize interaction between proteins in live cells.

The children gained a great from the experience. Our thanks to Mrs Doran for organising the event, to all the volunteers gave up their time to make it so enriching for the students, and not forgetting the fabulous Chapter 5 students who managed to convinced their family members to attend.
