On Monday afternoon, Joseph Swan Academy was delighted to welcome back a real friend and supporter of the Academy, Sir John Hall. Sir John has attended a number of events within the Academy in recent years and returned to speak with a cohort of Year 11 students about having ambition and motivation in the lead up to their summer examinations.
Sir John passionately shared numerous stories about his life and experiences from his school days through to his working life. He offered many valuable messages to the group about the value of education and was very happy to take questions from our students.
The students really valued this fantastic and inspirational opportunity and took time to individually thank Sir John, who was presented with a gift by the Head Teacher, Miss Scott, as a token of our thanks. We look forward to future visits from Sir John.
