School Visits / Visitors

Toby is a recovering alcoholic who has been sober for five years and kindly visited our school to  speak to our students about his story. Toby wrote a lovely Blog about his visit to SESC, please see below: 'Yesterday I spoke about alcoholism and my story to two groups of children at a Stevenage Education and Support centre (a pupil referral unit).⁣ All I can say is WOW! Some of the children have had to overcome more in their short lives than most would in 10 lifetimes. ⁣ They were two of the best groups I've ever had the privilege to stand in front of. They listened intently and even asked lots of brilliant questions.⁣ It was obvious the staff have a huge passion for giving their pupils a better start to life. It shone through each and every one of them.⁣ ⁣Even though I told the kids, I don't think they realised how much them listening to me rattle on, REALLY HELPS ME!⁣ It helps me keep my head in the right place. Absolutely blown away by yesterday! I feel like someone's zapped my batteries. If you have a story to tell that could help todays youth...I highly recommend telling it! Huge thank you to JANE SHIPLEY ⁣for inviting me and for all the amazing work you do! You can read Toby's story using the following link Toby's Blog And support can be found using this link NAOCA
