Everton in the Community (EitC) recently rewarded two local Primary School students who excelled in a poster design class with a one-on-one session with a Club designer.
Year six students Jess and Charlie were given the task of creating a poster that best reflects Everton Football Club and the Premier League Primary Stars program, with their impressive work being singled out for praise.
As a pat on the back EitC invited the two St Aloysius Catholic Primary School pupils to shadow a member of the Club’s design team looking to recreate the posters, before being given a tour of the Club’s HQ in the Royal Liver Building.
Sharelle Hunt, Senior Designer for Everton, took Jess and Charlie under her wing for the day showing the kids what it entails to be a full-time designer and work at Everton.
Sheryl Wrigley, Head Teacher of St Aloysius, said: “I think it’s really important for the kids to see that there are other careers as well as not just being footballers.
"It’s great for them to understand the design element, the marketing element and the people behind the scenes which is really important for the children to see.
“It's so impotent for kids to see the variety of careers out there, for Jess and Charlie to see the Club’s great facilities is also beneficial as the school doesn’t have these level of facilities. They’ll both be going back to school now and boasting to all of their friends.”
EitC currently work in 11 primary schools across Liverpool and Knowsley throughout the academic year delivering PE, PSHE, Literacy and Numeracy sessions.
Everton is one of 101 Premier League, EFL and National League clubs in England and Wales which provides in-school support to teachers and pupils as part of Premier League Primary Stars - the organisation’s education-linked community programme.
