"Every visitor spoke well and gave the children an insight on how to form a career in their field.
"This was the first of these days that we have held and hope it gave the pupils an insight into many different possible careers.
"We wanted to increase their awareness of different skills that they could gain to help them towards the world of work, such as communication, computer, and interpersonal skills."
The pupils aged from nine-13 were enthusiastic and had prepared a host of questions for their visitors.
A school spokesman said: "It wasn't just about the children learning about different jobs, it was also about them learning skills for the future.
"Our aim was to broaden their horizons and give them an in-depth insight into how the world works.
"Although the children are young, they grow up so fast. So the school felt introducing the children to such a programme was highly important.
