Roots Online

“Roots Online is a project between the University of York and York St John University, run to help students think about their future and the part that Higher Education might play in that. Normally the project would happen live in school but due to the Covid restrictions this year they are virtual and open to everyone. See the link below for more information.
On the 5th May there is an online chat from 5pm to 5.30pm, looking at what student life is like.”
