IT HAS been a calendar month full of careers for the children of Crosshill Primary School, who recently completed their work of work topic.

The children and their parents had been busy inviting visitors into school to talk about their jobs - asking questions, taking notes, and analysing information - but the boys and girls put theory into practice by organising a career convention during parents’ night.

They shared their learning and arranged a rota allocating them each different jobs throughout the evening, including Welcome Hosts, Information Area, Recreating the chocolate making process, displays about Skills, Qualities, Dream Jobs and Fact Files.

The children also sold drinks during the evening to continue to raise Micro Tyco money.

The children and staff of Crosshill Primary School would like to say a big thank you to all of the many parents, visitors and supporters throughout the month, including Carrick Academy pupils and staff for visiting and letting them ‘practise’ their Career Convention jobs a visit by the Army, when a tank came to Crosshill playground for the afternoon!

The legacy of the topic will live on with many links having been made with local businesses such as Turnberry Resort, Dobbies Garden Centre, Nestle, Aiyla, Ingrams, S.A.C – Social Work, Modern Apprentices, Registrar, County Vets and Dog, TMS Motor Parts, Maximillion I.T., S.S.P.C.A., Territorial Army and Girvan Lifeboat.
