Richard Challoner School

Year 8 Sons To Work Day

On Tuesday 18th June students in year 8 had their ‘take your sons to work day’ experiencing various workplaces with a parent/care/family member.

Students in school that day followed a plan of career planning and exploration, using our new careers platform Xello and reviewing some of the careers resources available in school. There was also a very imaginative activity around designing a product that could be sold linking to the Euros football.
