Students from St. Ives School have recently been involved in an interactive ‘I Love My Job’ session with Cornish Pirates’ Community Officer, Jack Richards, who, as many will be aware, is also a former Surrey & England cricketer.
Besides talking about a successful sporting career, and his present passion promoting community work undertaken by the Pirates and the obvious benefits a Stadium for Cornwall, Jack’s informal talk touched on career pathways generally in sport and the potential for those who have a drive to succeed. There was also a useful Q&A session during which the students participated with enthusiasm.
Following his visit, Jack said:
It was a real pleasure to visit St. Ives School, where I was warmly welcomed and the students were attentive and simply great.
Mark Adams, on behalf of St. Ives School also commented:
The students really enjoyed Jack’s session. It is not every day they get to meet someone who has played for England and this and his wealth of experience and advice had their strong attention. Some of the students have even come to me to ask more questions about some of the things he said since the day he came in which shows they were still thinking about it afterwards.
Jack did some really nice things the students are not generally used to, like shaking their hands as they came into the room which was great as it gave them a taste of how to act professionally in industry.
We are really grateful that Jack took time to visit us at St. Ives School. Hopefully he can attend again in the future to meet other students.
