PICTURES: Sia and Robes offer words of wisdom to St Helens College students
THERE were a couple of extra ‘career advisors’ on hand chatting to new students enrolling at college.
James Roby and Sia Soliola spent the morning at St Helens College mingling with students and telling them about the new vocational link up with Saints.
Students will be able to work in different departments at Langtree Park from hospitality to hospitality.
Chatting about their school years, Soliola, who went to a public school in New Zealand, admitted: “I suppose I was average at school. I passed my exams, but sport was really my thing.”
Roby is a former pupil of Legh Vale in Haydock and Cowley. He said: “I got my head down and never got into trouble. But it’s only once you finish school that you realise you could have done a lot better.”
Speaking about the partnership and the move from school to college Roby added: “It’s a big stepping stone. Some are quite nervous because it’s a big stage in their lives to go to college.
“The club will benefit from the link up because we will get young, enthusiastic people coming in.”
Soliola admits to being very much an adopted Sintelliner and has developed a genuine affection for the town: “I like it because of how chilled out and relaxed it is. When you walk through the town everyone says hi and you get good conversation with all age groups.
“So coming from Sydney, it’s a great place. Plus it’s a rugby mad town.”
