Visitors Assembly

6th March 2019

The children at Wicklea had a very special visitor this week as Chief Petty Officer Scotty Booth came in to assembly to explain all about his job in the navy. He explained all the important skills he has acquired over his twenty years of service, how he has made life long friends and experienced amazing things while doing a job he loves. It was great to see how enthused the children were by hearing about a career that they would never normally think about.  Some lucky children, and a very pleased Mr Morgan, got to try on his specialist equipment. Another great thing that we learned was how many different job roles are needed in the navy from chefs to engineers and how Scotty is able to use his qualifications he earned through the navy in other employment if he should want to. A very big thank you to Scotty for coming in and sharing with the children.
If you have a career that you feel the children would be interested in and maybe inspired by and you would be willing to share that either in assembly or by talking to individual classes, please let Mr Morgan know as we are keen to show the children the opportunities that could await them after school.
