Y8 Careers Fair 2015

IMG_5703The careers fair was delivered as part of a wider careers programme to our year eight
students. The aim of the event was to offer our students contact with employers so that
they begin to develop an understanding of the skills and attributes required for a range of careers.

The fair was conducting in a ‘speed dating’ style where students met and ‘grilled’ employers about career pathways and had the chance to gain an in-depth insight into jobs.

The students also attended a workshop with the Fire service during the afternoon.

Feedback from employers regarding the year eight students was very positive.

The careers programme this year has been complemented with the students making visitsto local universities as well as STEM and Business Ambassadors delivering sessions earlier inthe year.

Mrs Razzaqi said: “Our aim has been to provide the students with a range of activities and events in partnership with various organisations so that our students are exposed to a wide range of careers from an early age”

Year 5 Trip to Robinwood

The children had a fantastic time and threw themselves whole-heartedly into each activity.  We were extremely impressed with how the children conducted themselves and they were a real credit to our school.

The teamwork that they demonstrated was amazing and they really supported each other throughout.  I’m sure that the children have told you about all of the fun they had and you can now see it for yourselves through the photo gallery.
