St Laurence-in-Thanet careers day

Pupils at St Laurence-in-Thanet Junior School in Ramsgate have taken part in a careers day.

The youngsters from years 5 and 6 met representatives from 12 different career areas, including a midwife, a photographer, the fire service, a Polar scientist, a local chef and restaurant owner, Thanet District Council, a construction company, a head teacher and East Kent College.

Pupils had the opportunity to chat to the visitors and ask questions about their jobs.

One year 6 pupil said: “I didn’t realise there were so many careers that I would be interested in!”

Guests commented on how polite and enthusiastic the children were.

Head teacher Michelle Palmer said: “This was a fantastic opportunity for our children. They learned about so many careers and as a result, some are already beginning to plan their futures!

“We would like to thank all our visitors for making the morning so special and inspiring. We look forward to next year’s event being even bigger and better.”
