Royal Geographical Society Ambassador Visits Holgate

On Wednesday 19th April 2017, Ellie, a Royal Geographical Society Ambassador and a student from Cardiff University came to visit us. Ellie led four sessions throughout the day which aimed to promote Geography. Year 7 and Year 8 took part in an interactive session that explored the importance of Geography, looked at what jobs you could do with Geography and how it is relevant to everyday life. Year 9 were involved in a session that looked at the skills a Geographer needs and how this can help in the future. 

All students were a credit to the school, engaging in the sessions and asking some excellent questions. The sessions helped students to see how Geography is relevant beyond the classroom.
