SIMON MIESEGAES, HIGH SHERIFF OF WARWICKSHIRE’S 2020 CHALLENGE
On Monday 30th September 2019, Simon Miesegaes, High Sheriff of Warwickshire visited The Coleshill School. Simon gave a presentation to over 200 Year 11 students in an assembly informing them about his role as Sheriff and what it involves.
One of the focuses was on the 3 Point Challenge which involves:
High Sheriff “Unsung Heroes” Awards in March 2020; Warwickshire Crime beat; and Kissing it Better Charity.
The role of the High Sheriff is to support people in protecting and promoting law and order in the County with particular reference to the Police, Ambulance, Fire Service and Armed Forces (Simon is a Reservist with 4624 Squadron at RAF Brize Norton).
Following the assembly, Simon Miesagaes and Adam Richardson, Mayor of Coleshill enjoyed a tour of the school with Ian Smith-Childs, Headteacher and met with some of the students and staff.
Simon Miesegaes commented “It was a privilege to visit Coleshill – it is now for the School to find me two “unsung heroes” (a student and member of staff) for a High Sheriff Award – and from what I saw my visit, that is not going to be easy because everyone I met could be in the category! I very much hope too that the School will be in contact with www.kissingitbetter.co.uk which provides “work experience for the young at the same time and making the “sun shine” in hospital wards and care homes”. It was the most enjoyable day – my thanks to Ian Smith-Childs, Head Teacher, and all the staff who made it possible - Coleshill is a credit to Warwickshire education.”
