St. Cuthbert’s RC Primary School Pupils Dream BIG During Black History Month

St. Cuthbert’s RC Primary School Pupils Dream BIG During Black History Month

This morning Claire from the Centre for Leadership Performance was joined by Mohammed Dhalech AWAS Cumbria, Chetan Gosal Cumberland Building Society and Abayomi Pedro, a Cumbria On Health Call Doctor from Whitehaven to deliver a Primary Business Partnership Dream BIG workshop at St. Cuthbert’s RC Primary School, Wigton to celebrate Black History Month.

Lynne Robinson from the school said:

“We have seen how beneficial it has been for the pupils to have a range of successful visitors discuss with them their various pathways to a successful career, and how their choices at school, positively impact on the future.”

The pupils heard what it was like to work in: an Ice Cream Factory to setting up Cumbria AWAZ to empower the voices of Black and Minority Ethnic People and Communities in Cumbria; Starting with a paper round to managing Operation data sets for the Cumberland Building Society; and, from writing newspaper columns to becoming a Doctor. The volunteers emphasised the importance of developing key skills, highlighting the transferability across different job sectors and the importance of hobbies and volunteering in shaping successful future careers.

Today’s Dream Big session was organised by Primary Business Partnership delivered by the Centre for Leadership Performance Cumbria generously funded by OneAIM and Sellafield Ltd SiX
