A crew from easyJet visited the college for the first time as they delivered a presentation about careers with the airline.

The students were presented with the many career opportunities that easyJet has to offer on Wednesday 1 May.

The presentation certainly was a success when it came to feedback from students who really appreciated the opportunity.

Marina said:

“The easyJet team were really friendly and I have learnt so much about what they do, how they recruit and what they expect. The presentation easyJet delivered was very informative and made me think about what I want to do in the future.”

Sam added: “I found this experience useful, I found out how to apply and that I will have to complete a personality test, which sounds interesting!

“I also learnt some facts about the company and I’ll be doing some further research on easyJet as part of my future career route.”

Judy & Yani agreed, and said they would like to hear more from other companies.

They said:

“We really enjoyed having easyJet come and visit, we’ve had lots of information on piloting and cabin crew.

“It would be great to have other companies such as British Airways, Emirates and Virgin come in so that we can compare.”

And it wasn’t only students who were left impressed by the visit.

Dale, cabin manager at easyJet, said:

“This is our first time visiting Crawley College, although we have been visiting lots of schools and colleges around this area during this year.

“There are so many job opportunities at Gatwick, which is basically right at the students doorstep and we wanted to introduce the students to the different opportunities which are available in this industry such as cabin crew and customer service.

“If someone from a company such as easyJet came to visit me when I was at college, then it would have such a massive impact on my decision, this is what we hope to provide for students at Crawley College.”

Local musician holds workshop with Crawley school promoting Anti-Bullying

Schools up and down the country recently spent time marking Anti Bullying Week. At OLQOH School in Langley Green, the 2019 theme was “Change Starts with Us.”

Workshops at Our Lady Queen Of Heaven primary school were led by local musician Ollie Heath, who used the unifying and all-inclusive medium of music to get everyone fired up chanting values of team spirit, resilience, focus and respect.

The atmosphere throughout the day was electric, mirroring the type of experience you usually get in a sports arena, with Ollie using his guitar and loop station to whisk up on the spot beats, the type of which you’d usually only hear at an Ed Sheeran concert! 

Children and staff thoroughly enjoyed the special event with one pupil commenting, ‘today was an interesting, exciting and really enjoyable day which I will remember for a long time – thank you, Ollie.’

In response, Ollie said,
“when you hear an entire arena clapping and chanting in a concert, it’s electric and unifying. I use that same power to remind children how amazing they are and that anything is possible when people work together.

I’ve been coming back to Our Lady’s for years leading themed days and always have the best time! It’s an incredible school with phenomenal pupils, parents, Governors and staff!”.
