A Fantastic Opportunity

Westholme student wins work experience placement with MEP Sajjad Karim

In September, we celebrated European Day of Languages and welcomed MEP, Mr Sajjad Karim to school to speak to students about his role as a Member of the European Parliament and how he secured his position. After his visit, the languages department launched a competition for Sixth Form students with rather a unique prize – one week of work experience with our MEP, Mr Karim.

Entrants were required to write an essay detailing how they had benefited from being part of the EU. An interesting topic at a time when Britain is debating whether to remain part of the EU or whether to leave.

We were delighted to welcome Mr Karim back to Westholme today, to announce and congratulate the winner of the competition, Jessica Keenan.

Thank you to Mr Karim for visiting Westholme again and for offering this fantastic opportunity. We look forward to hearing how Jessica gets on.
