CAREERS WEEK March  2022

The children have really enjoyed Careers Week, which we linked closely to our school values of : Care and Compassion, Respect, Resilience and Aspirations! We welcomed several visitors and had a day ‘dressed as our future self’.

AUTHOR VISIT: Children in Class 1 and Class 2 enjoyed reading and writing workshops from local author Dan Worsley. The children learnt about the importance of believing in yourself and to not give up when times are hard. Children loved the creative workshops and they showcased their creative writing with their peers!

CAFOD CLUB: The children in Class 2 were joined by the children of St. Francis (our collaborative School), Christine Dewhurst who is our local CAFOD representative and volunteer chaplains from St. Mary’s Catholic College in Blackpool. The children looked at what they can do as young people to support people locally and around the world. We looked at the work of chaplaincy, and how important it is to do a job that gives you fulfilment, where you feel you are making a difference in someone else’s life.

HOMELESS SHELTER SUPPORT: We welcomed Phil from Lancaster Homeless Shelter who talked about the important work he does within the community to support those people who do not have a home in Lancaster. He discussed his job role and the fulfilment he gets from supporting those in need. The children discussed ways in which they can make a difference and try to support people who are in need of help.

FUTIRE SELF DAY: We had Zoo Keepers, Rock Stars and even a activists for the greater good! The children enjoyed dressing as their future self! In class, we looked at a range of jobs that are available and how important it is to have aspirations!
