Pupils at Kilburn Grange School have had the opportunity to attend clubs run by staff from education property firm, LocatED.
Run over the second half of the Autumn Term, two clubs ‘Latin and Ballroom’ and ‘Board Games’ clubs provide pupils with an opportunity to mix with professionals from the property world and develop new skills. As you can see from the pictures, our children are really enjoying the chance to play chess and develop their strategic skills!
Sonia Mallick, Headteacher at Kilburn Grange School stated that “We are very fortunate that a specialist company have offered their time to visit the school, engage with our children and share their experiences of the working world while having fun and teaching valuable skills at the same time! The pupils have absolutely loved the experience”
Staff at LocatED were invited to deliver a club for one hour a week at Kilburn, generously suggested by the Chief Executive of LocatED, Lara Newman.
LocatED are a government-owned property company creating much-needed school places for thousands of children. For more information on LocatED, please visit www.located.co.uk.
Lara commented that “our team were very enthusiastic to work with pupils in schools that we have supported to develop and see that thrive when developing new skills. Understanding what we have helped develop is very exciting!”.
Kilburn Grange School would like to thank Lauren, Nadia, Maya, Ravinder, Matthew, Sam, Michael, Alrick and Emma, who have all helped with the two clubs.
