“I started as a volunteer 3 years ago, it was the best decision I ever made! From the start, working with the Summer Cool team was like being part of a family. This family all have one goal which was to make the Year 6 to Year 7 transition easier.
“Over the last 3 years I have supervised groups of students from a number of backgrounds, interests and abilities. I have been fully supported by the team to develop my skills and confidence. Knowing that through my role a can empower and inspire students to do their best, gives me a sense of satisfaction; as I remember how scared I was when changing schools and I didn’t have a Summer Cool to ease the process.”
