A TOTAL of 15 different businesses, professions and sectors attended Burscough Village Primary School’s first careers fair.
More than 90 children from Year 5 and Year 6 Burscough Village and Year 6 pupils from Lordsgate Primary School took part in the event on Friday, July 13.
They were given the opportunity to talk to the businesses and ask questions about their professions.
Youngsters had also prepared a range of questions, which included qualifications, job satisfaction and salary!
The children grasped hands on experiences, including science experiments, CAD drawings, retail design software and CPR training. A number of businesses were giving away freebies which proved popular with the children.
Miss Anna Smith, headteacher, said: “Our school mission statement is ‘Striving for the future’ and we wanted to provide our children with this invaluable experience to be inspired by a wide range of careers.”
She went on to add: “We want the children to be passionate about their futures and have a purpose for their learning. They can be whatever they want to be!”
The careers fair was supported by a range of businesses and organisations, including: ThermoScientific; St John Ambulance; Firesprite; Jockey Club; Anwyl Homes; Sofology; Just H Architects; Tesco; Lancashire Police; Twenty Four Seven; Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust; Burscough Priory Academy; Burscough Library; West Lancs College; and West Lancs Sports Partnership.
