Ms Pereira is one of our wonderful Teaching Assistants and has been working on a variety of projects in The Hub since starting her new roll in January.

“I love my new role and am keen to make a difference to the students I work with so have come with the initiative to create a little garden with some of students from the Hub. Students seem to enjoy gardening when they are very stressed or anxious, or we sometimes go for a run, walk or doing something productive with their hands. We’ve been knitting and crocheting teddy bears, rabbits, snowmen… anything they ask for, I am here for them. We have just planted some sunflowers and are waiting for them to bloom.

I have passion for this and have also included cooking. I love to create a few recipes and cook with them in the HUB or in the Food Tech rooms.”
