Students on the Latin enrichment programme were paid a visit by former SJR student Katie Halsall, who now studies Ancient History at Newcastle University.
Katie spoke to the group about how her love of History combined with the Latin enrichment sessions she participated in while at SJR inspired her to continue study in Ancient History.
She spoke passionately about her enthusiasm for the subject area and praised her tutors who helped her to develop what she initially considered a hobby into a career aspiration.
Katie also spoke in the weekly Staff Briefing where she expressed her gratitude to the College for the opportunities her time at SJR opened up to her.
Our Latin students appreciated Katie taking the time to demonstrate how their extra curricular interests could blossom into a career path.
All of the staff at SJR, particularly Katie’s former tutors, would like to thank her for returning and encourage her to stay in touch in the future!
