Year 8 Careers – Inspiring young dreamers to dream big!
As part of our Careers Education programme, Year 8 students had the opportunity to find out more about the world of work in the celebration of “Take Your Daughter To Work Day” on Thursday 25th April 2019. There were a variety of workplaces visited including Hospitals, Schools, Businesses and even a visit to the Financial Times.
What did they learn from the day?
“Seeing relationships between the staff and the children, the way the children enjoyed their learning environment and how welcoming all the staff and children were towards me”
“I saw people using teamwork and being supportive to everyone’s ideas”
“I learnt about being patient, showing respect and being more confident”
“I used a lot of computer skills and I was very useful as the people there couldn’t use computers very well”
“I loved this day because it was really different from a normal day at school and I would definitely do it again”
Thank you to all the Year 8 parents that gave up their time willingly to make this such a great experience for the students.
