During our recent careers day, our children from Nursery to Year 6 were given the chance to learn about and explore a range of careers at our first ever careers day. This was an exciting opportunity to create links between the classroom and the workplace and build aspirations for our children. The day was a tremendous success, with our guest of honour Graeme Storm kicking it off by sharing his journey to success. Over the course of the day, the children took part in a variety of exciting sessions and we welcomed visitors including a professional dancer, mechanical engineers, hair and beauty therapists, flight attendants, a lifeguard, an equine dentist, fire officers and the police who all inspired our children to aim high. Some of the younger children even got to use a fire hose from a fire engine and start the siren of a police car and our Year 6 children enjoyed a visit to the local sixth form college to learn about the courses they could take once they leave secondary school.
We very much hope the day has helped our children realise that anything is possible when you believe in yourself and are prepared to work hard to get there. A huge thank you to our visitors for delivering such inspiring sessions, to Mr Smith for organising the event and all of the staff for supporting such a brilliant day.
