Staff and students of the English Studies Dept. launch their Public Engagement Scheme!

It was Rita Pierson who said: “Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be” (2013). In the University of Sheffield International Faculty, CITY College we, as educators, strive towards this mentality proven also by the official launch of the Public Engagement Scheme titled “English Language Lessons for Teenagers” designed in collaboration with the Municipality of Thessaloniki, to be offered to members of financially weak families.

Last week, Staff and Students cordially welcomed the newest and youngest members to the ESD family! Our Public Engagement Scheme for high-school students—designed and led by Dr. Paschalia Patsala, Head of the Department, and Ms. Cathy Marazi, Lecturer of the Dept., demonstrates the belief of CITY College community in equal opportunities for educational and social advancement. This initiative demonstrates the International Faculty's commitment to be of service to the society—a philosophy that lies at the heart of our Mission.

In our new endeavor, Express Publishing has allowed us to make the Public Engagement Scheme a reality with the generous offer of top-quality, innovative material that will aid teachers and students in the coming lessons for the following three academic years, for which we wholeheartedly thank Express Publishing.

Demonstrating via yet another occasion that there is no “I” in team work, the volunteers of the ESD look forward to embarking along with their young students on an inspiring educational journey. The assistance of all parties involved, who have contributed to the realisation of this initiative, is greatly appreciated and has resulted in the additional strength and confidence required to see this initiative take flight; after all, “alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” (Helen Keller).
