Year 8 Careers 'Take your Daughter to Work' Day

Friday, 27 January 2017

Over 150 Year 8 Presdales students hung their school uniforms in the wardrobe and went to work with their parents on Friday 27th January.

‘Take your Daughters to Work Day’ provided the opportunity for the girls to see what their parents are doing when they have a busy day at work. They explored a variety of work places including Hertford Horse Bits, American Express, the University of Hertfordshire and Yoox Net-a-Porter Group.

In charge of the project, our careers adviser, Nicola Stow said, ‘Young women these days are very aspirational. Their dreams will lead them to exciting careers and as a school we want to encourage this. Accompanying their mothers or fathers into work now is just one step on the way to deciding what they will do in later years.’
