On Friday we had our first ever Careers Day at St. Joseph’s. It was amazing! The costumes were outstanding. The children really were creative. We had a range of careers from marine biologists, vets, doctors, you-tubers, farmers, Olympic athletes, scientists, rock stars, gamers, astronauts, engineers, police, David Walliams and many many more. We even had the Prime Minister!
A massive thank you to our volunteers and parents who came to share their experiences with the children; they were very inspired! We had a range of speakers: a lawyer, singer, advertising agent, and engineer, a journalist, the Mayor of Gravesham, the Kent Fire and Rescue Service and the Port of London Authority. The children had a surprise when they saw the Detective Superintendent and PC Pattrick with their police van waiting for them in the playground this morning!
We have definitely raised aspirations today and the children have really understood that they can achieve anything that they set their minds to as long as they work hard!
