Year 9 Careers Fair
On Tuesday 6 December, our hard-working Year 9 students held a Careers Fair for all students in Years 7 and 8. In the months running up to it, each form group prepared stands displaying information covering 32 different career areas, from the Armed Forces to Culture, Logistics to Health Care and Animal Care to Engineering. The aim of the event was to introduce students to the various sectors and roles within them and to develop students’ research and communication skills.
Students and staff visiting the event were impressed by the amount of effort and enthusiasm that the Year 9 students had put into the event and Year 7 and 8 students thoroughly enjoyed it and found it very worthwhile. At the end of the day, third, second and first place prizes were awarded to the best stands.
