Tor Bank Work Experience 2019
This year we were delighted again to welcome three sixth form students from Tor Bank Special School to Stranmillis. Each Tuesday morning Kirsty, Lewis and Reuben gained valuable skills and made many friends, accompanied and supported by Mrs Mary Hull from Tor Bank.
Kirsty worked with Kate and Yvonne serving customers in Betty’s coffee shop; Lewis helped deliver the mail and arrange classroom furniture as part of the portering team with Darren, William and James; and Reuben became part of the gardening team working closely with Niall.
All three students really enjoyed their time working at Stranmillis and quickly became part of the Stran community. Several members of College staff were delighted to be able to attend the school’s end of year leaving celebration.
Dr Noel Purdy, who arranges the work experience each year, commented, “Again this year we would like to thank our three wonderful students from Tor Bank – Kirsty, Lewis and Reuben – for all their hard work. We greatly value our partnership with Tor Bank and wish them every success in the future.”
