REBECCA Galley, Managing Director and Aaron Goffin, Sales Manager, were invited to Albany Junior School recently. Rebecca said: “The invitation formed part of the Head Teacher’s plans to share ideas with the children about careers and opportunities beyond education.
Rebecca delivered an assembly to the children about what she enjoyed at school and her career. She also talked about what we do at Hydroscand, and all the different jobs people do in our business, along with exciting pictures of the machinery our customers make and operate. As well as that she explained about the number of engineering and manufacturing business in the local area.
Rebecca thoroughly enjoyed the experience, despite her initial nerves. She said, “I will certainly look for more opportunities to work with local schools to promote engineering and manufacturing careers, and hopefully some of the children will want to work in the sectors when they are older. I would definitely encourage anyone who can to do the same, it is rewarding for everyone involved!”
Mrs Goffin, Head Teacher at the school shared the details of the assembly with parents in her weekly newsletter. She said: “The children had lots of interesting questions and enjoyed the presentation she shared.
“Before they left, Rebecca and Aaron donated seven amazing hydraulics science kits for the children to experience and use within school. The Children and Mrs. Wright, our Science Lead were all very excited by this and can’t wait to open them. A huge thanks to Hydroscand and the team for your time and building local community links.”
