Education = Transforming + Informing

Croydon Park Hotel Visit

Tuesday’s lesson was the one the students have been preparing for.  Trevor met the students in the school foyer and we all walked down together to Altyre Road – The Croydon Park Hotel.  (Well actually, I took the car) Trevor had the chance to speak to each of the seven students individually and find out a little about their plans and strategies for the evening. Not too much was revealed however, as the presentations were to come later that afternoon. Lucy (Children in Crisis events manager) and Nic (Contact at Croydon Park Hotel) were waiting for us there.  We did ask Nic if it was possible for the Hotel to give us the suite for free and only charge for the catering but he didn’t think that would be possible. The price has already come down from a whopping £1600 to £500 so while we are grateful, there is no harm in hoping for the absolute best scenario (i.e all profits going to charity). Students had the opportunity to look around the suite, ask questions about the equipment and catering options and generally get a feel for the place. We even sat down at a table and took a picture! Here it is!
