Primary Futures aims to broaden horizons and raise aspirations by connecting schools to volunteers from the world of work to share their fascinating life stories and help make the connections between learning and future jobs.
We are keen to invite parents and older family members into school to take part in this fantastic initative and help the children to "Dream, Believe and Acheive" their goals.
We have had James Brokenshire, the MP for Old Bexley and Sidcup and the Bishop of Rochester, James Langstaff. We were also lucky enough to have a visit from Mrs Newett's husband, a serving Air Force pilot.
On 10th July 2018 we had a range of professional people volunteer their time to come and work with the pupils at school. Pupils had the opportunity to ask the different professionals questions about their jobs and find out more.
We had 2 engineers, an artist, London Fire Brigade, a journalist, a green grocer, a footballer, a costume designer, a biochemist, a police officer, a surveyor, a nursery teacher, two paramedics. The children were also asked to dress up in an outfit related to their future career.
Thank you to all the volunteers and Miss Tragheim for organising a great day.
