Motivational words from alumni as sixth form gets set to mark 30th anniversary
Six alumni from Havering Sixth Form returned to the college to encourage and motivate current students – giving them invaluable insight into future careers and some thought-provoking advice.
The college celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and as part of the milestone celebrations, former students are being asked to come back to give accounts of their journeys since leaving the sixth form.
The six alumni – now on apprenticeships, working or at medical school – delivered separate aspirational talks to students about working hard and being successful in their next steps.
Havering Sixth Form Deputy Principal Phil Hall said: “To have these six alumni return in one week to college to give invaluable advice to our current students was fantastic. Sharing their experiences will raise aspirations and encourage our young people to strive for their dreams.”
More alumni will be returning for the college’s special Awards Evening in June which will recognise how Havering Sixth Form has shaped the lives of so many former students since it was opened 30 years ago on the site of the old Dury Falls School in Wingletye Lane, Hornchurch.
