There talks were about the paths that led them to where they are now and the backgrounds they came from. The second session was given to guest speaker Andy Cope, an inspirational speak and Doctor of Happiness. He got students to reflect on their personalities and choices in life. The purpose of the event was to make sure students knew about the importance of the GCSE exams and how it could change their future.
