This isn’t a bad joke but in fact a careers fair which was hosted at Roysia Middle School last week.

The event which featured around 20 different companies who highlighted the different jobs they do to Year 7 and 8 pupils .

Erica Clark, deputy head of the school, said: “The idea of the day was to open the childrens minds to what is possible in life and to encourage them to make sensible subject choices.

“It was really successful and they were absolutley thrilled with. There were careers that they didn’t even know exsisted. We had such a variety of professionals here from nearly 20 different jobs and the children had advice from the a careers officer.”
