A workshop was held at the school last Thursday to help inspire the children and motivate them to follow their dreams with their chosen career options.

The sessions were led by former Waterloo Road TV star Joe Slater, teenage millionnaire Dhillan Bhardwaj and influential YouTuber Hussain Manawer, of Hussain’s House.

During the hour-long event, they also talked about their own stories and what they have learnt from within their respective industries.

Actor and singer Joe said: “It is very important for us to speak to the young generation in a language that they understand and can relate to.”

Fashion designer Dhillan, 19, who has styled Miley Cyrus, said: “I’ve wanted to do this for a very long time, and now with my new shop opening in Newcastle Eldon Square, it is only right that we give back to the local community.”

Hussain, who was an Olympic Torchbearer in 2012, added: “I just know how much the students will be able to take away from this, and working with two talented people like Dhillan and Joe is only making this experience even more incredible.”
