Welcome to Fulbridge Academy's Aspirations Fair 2018.
What is an aspiration?
An aspiration is having a hope or ambition to achieve something, in this case the children are going to be looking at careers.
On Thursday 27th September, children in years 4, 5 & 6 attended the Fulbridge Aspirations Fair. This event was organised to inspire and enthuse the children of Fulbridge to think about their ambitions and to have a drive for lifelong learning.
The children had the opportunity to walk around different work stations and talk to lots of different experts about their jobs.
All the children received an Aspirations Passport which had a photo on the front, with them wearing a graduation gown and cap. Inside there were 10 places for stamps, for the 10 different industries. To graduate from the Aspirations Fair, the children had to collect a stamp from each station.
Local veterinarian. A vet treats injured or ill animals, which can be pets such as cats and dogs, or more exotic animals such as lions, reptiles, elephants and other zoo animals. Vets can also undertake research into animals to learn more about them.
