|Rajae Wright – meeting with Mellers Governors 13.6.19
Being at Mellers helped me with my social and communication skills. I have perspective to help me with problems.
It was a privilege to be at Mellers and learn music. I have progressed and I want an instrument to continue into the future.
In year 7 it was like a refresh of things I’d learnt at Mellers. I could figure things out.
Balls 2 Poverty with semi-professional footballers helped me develop my skill level and physical strength. I was happy at Mellers.
I had lots of opportunities – Mellers gave me paths to take to be a good person
It was special when I first picked up a trombone.
It was sad that I was bullied for my weight but I learnt not to pay attention to it.
Other children in year 7 said “Mellers is a sick school”, it has a good reputation.
If I could go back and tell myself something to do differently at Mellers it would be to ask for help more, to boost my knowledge.
I would advise children at Mellers to listen to your teachers, be kind to others and have fun to be the best you can.
I felt safe at Mellers and trusted the teachers. Things like Place2Be helped take a weight off my shoulders.
When I came to Mellers on work experience, the atmosphere felt similar.
