Dame Judith Mayhew Jonas DBE Talk

Alia and Anisha, Year 13, report on interviewing Dame Judith Mayhew Jonas DBE:

Year 12 and 13 had the opportunity to hear Dame Judith Mayhew Jonas speak during their PSHE session on Thursday. During our interview we were able to discuss her career in law, through which many varied positions have opened up to her, including Chairwoman at the Royal Opera House as well as leadership of the Corporation of London. Hearing Dame Judith Mayhew Jonas talk about not only her career but her passions outside of work reinforced the importance of personal hobbies, such as the arts or sport, an integral part of Channing life. For members of the Sixth Form who are planning to pursue higher education, she offered a fantastic insight into the admissions process highlighting many traits found in successful students. It was so motivating hearing from somebody with as much experience and knowledge as Dame Judith, who has made such valuable contributions to all aspects of society. She was incredibly inspirational and the perfect example of a strong female enjoying success.
