OLD SCHOOL TIES ON CAMPUS

 

A former Yarborough High School pupil who now works at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside is giving pupils from her former school an insight into the benefits of higher education this week.

 

The university’s Education Liaison Manager Jacqueline Mayer will run another day of events for Yarborough’s year 10 pupils on Thursday 25th May after 40 students visited the Lincoln campus on Monday.

 

“It’s great to see some of the teachers that were at Yarborough when I was a pupil,” said Jacqueline. “It’s my chance to show the students from my old school what a great advantage coming to ULH can be if they decide to apply.”

 

In total 80 students and teachers will visit the campus this week, getting to grips with state-of-the-art TV production equipment and going on tours of the campus with student ambassadors.

 

“The student ambassadors can give the pupils a real insight into life at university as they’re going through it themselves - they can answer all the questions thrown at them,” she added.
