Work Experience 2010

Immortalising the moment


Immortalising the moment

Having a photographer on a special day or to hold memories of your chilldren is very important, especially when they grow up so fast. Having someone provide you with captured moments that you can keep for ever is is something we all would consider, but firstly we need to know who to chose. 

 

Tim HenselAs part of our work experience we interviewed a local photographer Tim Hensel. He moved to New Mills with the intention to make photography his full time occupation. Since the age of 15 his passion has been photography and he would turn his bathroom into a dark room for days, to print his pictures and his passion continued, finding himself now as a very successful photographer. Before becoming a photographer though, he continued with his A levels in Biology, Chemistry and Maths and then successfully completed a degree in Biology. He also has an A level in photography which he did in the evenings after leaving university. His artistic background inspired him more and helped him along the way - no wonder with his father being a sculpter and his mother being a painter.

Chapel gets new life with youth and arts

Phillip Kendall at St James The LessFor our second interview with local organisation we met and interviewed Mr. Philip Kendall in regard to the plan to transform a local chapel (St. James The Less) into an arts centre for the community.

 

The chapel is to undergo a £750,000 restoration project to convert it into a thriving community arts centre.

 

The main part of the revamp at St. James the Less will be restoring a set of historical stained glass windows, designed by world renowned artist Charles E Kempe.

 

We discovered trustees of the chapel want young people to get involved with the planning and design of the new arts centre.

Breathing Remedies


Nobody nose how to breathe like Janet!

As part of their work experience 3 Year 10 students from New Mills School Business and Enterprise College, Danielle, Danny and Molly, took on the challenge of interviewing some local business people and writing articles for the New Mills Web website about those businesses.

 

They started this process with Janet Winter, a Buteyko breathing practitioner trading as Breathing Remedies based in Furness Vale. Janet often attends the Business Network meetings organised by New Mills School, and was intrigued to hear what they would ask her. This article explains what they found out about Janet's use of the Buteyko breathing method to help people with asthma and other breathing difficulties.
