Visit of Mitchell Kirby, Civil Servant, Department of Education

Mitchell came in and spoke to us about his job.  He explained that a civil servant is someone that is employed by the Crown and how the Civil Service supports the government.  He shared with us his interests in Maths and Triple Jump and how these helped him to get this really good job.  He explained that there are other departments he could work for, but he chose to work in funding for schools.  It was really interesting to meet him and it opened up a new job possibility that we weren’t aware of before.  It also made us think about how the government spends money on things like schools and the different priorities they have.
