Students and teachers of the Non-Pariel Pre- Primary School successfully completed their third career day event last week.
Teacher in Charge Ms Wendy Cox told the Grenada Informer Newspaper via telephone on Wednesday that in this third year of the special event, little ones showed their enthusiasm and bravery.
She said teachers; parents and the Non-Pariel community were very supportive to the students.
She noted that last year’s career day, various professionals visited the school and held some very interactive sessions with the students, as well as provide hands-on information and showcased some of the materials they used at their jobs; this year was a bit different as students were taken to the different job sites to be exposed to what actually goes on in the workplace, representing the careers chosen by the students.
Ms Cox told the paper, that the main aim of having the career day is all about giving students an opportunity to say what they would like to become in the future and why they choose a particular career.
The teachers accompanied the students to the Beauty Salon in Waltham, St. Mark, as well as the Fish Market, the Health Center and the Police Station all located at Gouyave St. John
Individual students elected to pursue careers as:
Farmers- to grow, eat and produce healthy crops; firefighter, to put out fires and save lives;
Police officers/SSU to protect and serve; doctors/ nurses to give an injection and help save people’s lives and make them feel better; pilot, to take people to their destinations safely, among other interesting careers chosen by the little ones.
