It’s science week and to mark the occasion Miss Barrett held a special assembly on Wednesday here at the Beech Academy. We were joined, virtually, by Dr Vivienne Wild, Reader in astrophysics at the University of St Andrews. Miss Barrett taught Dr Wild earlier in her career and invited Dr Wild to speak to our students about the importance of science.
Thank you to Dr Wild for giving up her time, and to our students who listened attentively to Dr Wild’s message. They were pleased that Miss Barrett had inspired her students to follow a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) career.
