Friends of GT Scholars – Thank you for your help in 2020! 🎄😊

So here we are, at the end of another term and the end of the year! Although this year has probably been one of the most challenging years that the world has collectively faced, we’re going to stay positive and hope that next year is a good one. And without further ado, here’s the last newsletter for 2020! We look forward to catching up with you in 2021!

Thank you so much for a great Volunteer Christmas Meetup!
Firstly, I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who enjoyed the evening with us! We had a great night with our volunteers and scholars last night – It was great to see you! It was also great to have some of the scholars join us for a couple of fun games, and Eshan’s Rubik’s cube demonstration left us all in awe – He has got some serious skills! For everyone who couldn’t make it, don’t worry, we’ll have another one in just a few months and hopefully, you’ll be able to join us then.

Can you be a speaker or be on a panel at next year’s Careers Summit?
You might have already spoken to me, or another GT team member about the Online Careers Summit 2021. If this is news to you, allow me to fill you in on the details quickly. We’re planning on running a series of online Careers Summit days, and the first one will be in February. We’re looking for volunteers to join our panel of speakers to share their story, which can help inspire young people. We’d love to have you on board! Thanks to everyone who’s signed up already! We’re looking forward to having you on our panel. If you’d like to get involved, please complete this short form, and we’ll get in touch when we’re back!

Christmas & New Year Office Closure
Today is our last day before we close for Christmas and I just wanted to share our Christmas break office closure times. Our office will be closed from Monday 21st December to Friday 1st January and our first day back at the office will be on Monday 4th January 2021. If you would like to get in touch with us before we close, please email us or give us a quick call. We’ll also be doing a round of calls to wrap up a few loose ends before we set off for the Christmas & New Years break!

Have a fantastic Xmas break and a wonderful new year! I look forward to catching up with you in the new year!🎄😊
