Dreamcatcher assemblies are a wonderful opportunity to meet people doing interesting things in the world beyond school. This year already we’ve been inspired by two Dreamcatchers in different walks of life.

Jo Westhead is Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at Schroders, a big company in the City. Her job is all about supporting charities and communities across the world. Recently she abseiled down Broadgate Tower to raise money for charity!

Jo has also volunteered for Thames Valley and the City of London Police. She even won an award for Special Constable of the year.

Edmund Connolly works for the British Library, but his job is nothing to do with books.

“I make exhibitions on subjects ranging from dinosaurs to mummies. My current project is working with unicorns and cauldrons and Harry Potter. You should come and see it!”

“When I was your age I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I just knew I wanted to live in a big city and have a job where I can travel and learn about different places and cultures. I used to love going to the British Museum, but it took me a while to realise I wanted to work in museums.”

“You don’t need to make life decisions at your age. Just find out what you love and go for it!

 

Could YOU be our next Dreamcatcher?

 

Are YOU in a job or on a course that might intrigue and inspire our children? We would love you to come in on a Tuesday or Thursday morning to answer children’s questions about what you love doing and how you got to where you are.

If you or anyone you know could help shape children’s dreams, please tell your child’s teacher or contact Harriet Goodman (hgoodman@st-lukes.islington.sch.uk).

Thank you!
