A chance for the community to be heard
Norse, NCFC in the community, Floranova, Greens Farming, Swaffham Veterinary Centre, NK Patrick Electricals and a Digital Media consultant were just some of the organisations who came to speak at the fair.
Mrs Kim Stabler, Deputy Head of The Nar Valley Federation of Church Academies said:
“It was an inspirational session leaving some of our youngsters enthused for further knowledge of future paths. We hope that the career fair will inspire the children to consider future paths and widen their aspirations!”
The children from across the Nar Valley Federation had the chance to ask questions and hear about different professions, whilst sampling cake, switching on lights, lifting sacks of potatoes, studying seed and scrutinising rabbits teeth!
Freddie from Sporle said
"I liked all the people, I was most interested in the farming as I learned if I put one potato into the ground by September I could have 20 potatoes - I really enjoyed the afternoon"
Emilia from Sporle said
"The vet was really interesting, there are so many parts of an animal"
Jack from Castle Acre said
"I found it fun because I got to meet other children from the federation. I quite liked a few of the stalls, the electrician surprised me because he had a huge wire and I didn't know a wire could be that big!"
Joseph from Castle Acre said
"I really like it, I like the electrician because he had lots of things to show us, he inspired me!"
Isabelle from Narborough said
"It was interesting the way they combined seeds to make certain plants"
Ellenor from Narborough said (about the digital media consultant)
"He was really interesting, especially the part where he said I could be a millionaire by age 30 if I took that job"
