On Friday 18th October,Wilmington Academy held the first in an extensive series of drop down careers assemblies.

Guest speaker, Elliott Reid, owner of the Revitalise Clinic in Gravesend related his story of how he came to be a business owner through his interest in health, love of boxing and desire to solve problems.  His resilience was clear and he advised students that life is short and that they should take their time seriously and that there is value in making the best of other people’s time.

During his presentation, he asked attending students, who were from years 12 and 13, to make notes. He later queried these with them taking their own likes and desires to talk to them about individual possible career pathways.

Thank you to Elliott for taking the time to come to Wilmington Academy.
