Numerous local employers, professionals and colleges were invited into the school for the day to work with our Year 7 students. We started the day with an inspiring warm up speech from a local celebrity speaker and a game of ‘What’s my Line’ where five of our professionals challenged our students to guess their line of career. They came up with some amazing answers and ideas and managed to build the suspense to fever pitch until we brought the line-up out again ‘dressed up’ with their normal uniforms and props.
The day then continued with some Ice Breaker games where the professionals were invited to lead groups of the students to take part in a variety of career themed challenges. Finally, we concluded the speed networking event with employers/professionals seated at tables and students circulating, asking questions with just five minutes at each table. A brilliant time was had by all and students felt ‘inspired’ and ‘challenged’ by things that they had not considered before. We are extremely thankful to all of the employers and professionals involved, who gave up their time to come to our school.
