On Tuesday, the school hosted a number of institutions and professionals at its first ever career fair.

Representatives from the Ministry of Telecommunication, Tourism, Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries, as well as the Central Water and Sewerage Authority, Chawa’s Beauty Salon and School of Cosmetology and Alliance Francaise were on hand to impart knowledge to the students.

Through the use of speeches, brochures, slide shows and demonstrations, the students received information on the functions of the organizations which were represented and what it takes to be employed in the respective fields.

Delivering an oral presentation was motivational speaker Dr. Jules Ferdinand who spoke on career guidance.

Also addressing the students was Minister of Telecommunications Dr. Jerrol Thompson.

Co-ordinator of the career day Desmond Sampson indicated in his welcome remarks that the event was organized in an effort to heighten the awareness of the various careers and employment available when the students leave school.

He said that career day would also empower the students with the knowledge so that they would be able to make better decisions as to their choices of subjects.

Christopher Sampson, the school’s guidance counselor, said that there are plans to make the activity and annual event.
