City workers deliver lessons in Tower Hamlets schools
High-flyers and City slickers have been taking time out to inspire young kids in East End schools to promote the message that every child can succeed in their career.
Senior employees from some of the world’s biggest businesses were on hand last week to teach children at Mulberry School for Girls and Bishop Challoner Catholic Collegiate for Girls, both of which are in Commercial Road, Shadwell.
Among those who took part in the scheme was Kate Richards, senior vice president of human resources at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
After delivering her lesson, she said: “Every child deserves the chance to innovate, to be successful and aspire to be whatever they want to be – and in many ways, the opportunities for all of this are endless.”
The programme of lessons was part of a campaign by education charity Teach First to promote the message that ‘Every Child Can’.
