Purvis Primary had its annual career fair hosted by school counsellor Shannalee Aberdeen.

The career fair took place last week where community workers visited the students to speak about their career roles.

In addition to learning about career roles, students also learnt how mathematics, literacy and sound work ethics are used in different work settings.

The community workers who participated in this auspicious event were: David Burt, the Premier; Bermuda Aikikai; Seth Pearman, of Salve’ Massage; Ms Kentisha Tweed, a lawyer, and the Bermuda Police Service.

After listening to the exciting and engaging presentations, the students had a career parade where they dressed as a community worker and marched around the school premises to the tune of marching music.

Parents and school neighbours watched the event, which made the occasion even more memorable and exciting.
