Former student gives a helping hand with Covid testing at school
A former student has answered a call out for volunteers to help with Covid testing after it was introduced in school following the recent lockdown. Hannah Speakman, who left our college in 2019, and is currently in her second year of a BSC (Hons) degree in Professional Policing, did not hesitate to offer her time to support the school while she is studying at home.
Hannah has come into school on a regular basis over the last few weeks to help. A dedicated space has been created for the testing which includes all the necessary equipment, screens and social distancing.
Jenna Potter said: “It really did not surprise me that within hours of putting an appeal out for volunteers that Hannah was pretty much the first to get in touch. When at school and college, Hannah could always be relied on to give a helping hand. She was especially good working with our younger students and pupils from visiting primary schools and she also volunteered for five years at Richmond Rugby Club. Her concern for others and strong sense of community will certainly be of huge benefit in her career path in the police. We are most appreciative of Hannah giving up her time to help us in the early stages of the Covid testing in school.”
Hannah said: “It has been great to be back at school and offer support with the Covid testing. I am still in education myself and I am very aware it’s a very tough time at the minute so I wanted to help in any way I could.”
