On Tuesday 17th September our Year 12 cohort attended an induction day at the Museum of Liverpool. It proved an extremely interesting and informative day in a fantastic building!
Students initially received a talk from Liverpool John Moore’s University who offered guidance on choosing University courses and offered advice to students on how to write personal statements.
Next, Mr Bellmon addressed Year 12 with a talk about getting the most out of their time at college as well as spending time on Individual Learning Plans for students.
The afternoon was spent on a carousel of four workshops based on Social History in Liverpool. These included LGBT+, Language and Law. Students were taught about the history of Pride and The Michael Causer Foundation. Empowering Women – Fighting for Rights. Stories of local, inspirational women were shared such as those of Eleanor Rathbone, Angela Eagle and Kitty Wilkinson. Legacies of Transatlantic Slavery which was delivered by a team from the International Slavery Museum. And a guided visit of John and Yoko exhibition – Double Fantasy. Students especially enjoyed learning of their ongoing Imagine Peace quest, as well as participating in the karaoke booth!
The day also proved a great opportunity for making new friends and socialising with new St Hilda’s students.
Thanks to the staff at the museum for all of their support and sharing of their cultural knowledge!
