Every job but a candlestick maker at Brunshaw Primary Aspiration Day!

Police dog handlers, midwives, journalists and cake makers made up some of the weird and wonderful professions displayed to Brunshaw Primary School pupils.

Children from Years 4, 5 and 6 listened intently to the workers who visited their school as part of a Careers Aspiration Day.

There were demonstrations in the school yard from specialist dog handlers and emergency services while an artist, florist, photographer, plumber and electrician also demonstrated their work.

Teacher Mrs Carole Atkinson, who organised the day, said: “It has been a wonderful and rewarding experience for the children who will have learned about the different jobs they could pursue when they leave school.

“It was definitely not gender stereotyped either as a lot of the boys seemed genuinely interested in midwifery while the girls enjoyed trying out the police riot gear!”
