Careers Week 2023

On Monday 6th March , we kicked off National Careers Week with a fantastic selection of inspirational speakers for our children.  They were able to listen to talks about being a Vet, a Firefighter, working in the Royal Navy and a Legal Executive.  They asked lots of questions to our speakers about their different careers, while the children listened intently.  A great first day with lots more to come throughout the week.  #NCW2023

Day two of National Careers Week was a fantastic inspirational visit from Miss Moran from Club Doncaster Foundation.  The children listened and asked questions about Miss Moran’s sport career and heard how hard work, determination and a love for the your career really is crucial to your future aspirations.  We were also lucky enough to have a video message from professional boxer and current WBO and IBO Super-Welterweight Champion Terry Harper and some of us were able to try on her belts, which were very heavy.  Lots more careers sessions to look forward to this week.  #NCW2023 #

During day three of National Careers Week, we were fortunate to have two speakers talk to our Year 5 and Year 4 children. Year 5 had an inspiring talk all about life in the Navy. Mr Marshall talked about the 44 countries he had visited and even brought a cannon ball to show from the Mary Rose. Mrs Wilson, our school governor, gave an aspirational talk to Year 4, who had some great questions to ask. More careers talk still to come over the next few days. #NCW2023 #

To finish day three of National Careers Week, we had a very exciting visit from Mr Camm, he gave a fabulous talk about his career in the RAF Police.  Year 3 were transfixed for the whole hour and listened intently and asked really great questions.  #NCW2023

Day four of National Careers week was very busy at Saltersgate Junior School.  Year 3 had a visit from two amazing nurses, the sessions were very ‘hands on’ and the children learnt lots of practical knowledge about life in the NHS.  They absolutely loved it.  Year 4 had a visit from a lovely mum, who worked in recruitment and spoke about the importance of resilience in your career.  Year 5 had a fantastic informative talk from Mr Clark about sustainability and how to look after our planet, lots of fantastic questions were asked by our children.  Miss Moran visited Year 6 to talk about her role in sport and working for Doncaster Rovers bringing belts again from the boxer Terry Harper.  It was such an amazing career talk.  #NCW2023

Our final day for National Careers Week saw a really informative talk about careers you can have by working in a bank.  Year 5 heard all about how it’s important to look after your money, save for your future and how budgeting can be really useful, especially in the current climate that most of us are experiencing.  The children asked lots of questions and listened well.  What an amazing Careers Week we’ve had at Saltersgate Junior School.  #NCW2023
