At our first Careers Day of the school year our Year 5s and 6s heard all about career opportunities from a firefighter, police officers, an airline pilot, a university student, a dental nurse and representatives from a car auction company and Basildon Sporting Village.
The aim of the day was to inspire our young people to follow their dreams and understand that nothing is impossible as long as they work hard and always give of their best. Many of the reps brought in props and work equipment so that the children could try things on or role play the job.
It is brilliant that these reps could give their time to be in school for the day and encourage the children to aim, strive and achieve. The children were absolutely buzzing at the end of the day. It is always good for the children to hear first-hand from different members of the community about how they achieved their goals as it helps them to put their own education into perspective.
