3. Career Fair
  • Objective : To share their learnings about the world of work, education, and career pathways with the whole school.
Pupils were divided into teams to work on a career project that is related to industry that they have been deployed to. Each team will be required to set up a booth and each booth consists of static display and hands on activities. We had a total of 28 booths in 2016. 

Career Fair involves the whole school cohort as audience where the various classes were staggered over the day to visit the booths and learn more about the different careers through the sharing by the P6 pupils. It is an enriching experience for the whole school as the presenters built their confidence and presentation skills while the audience was enthralled with the massive display of the senior’s learnings.
