Somerset Primary pupils all abuzz at Careers Fair
On Thursday last week Somerset Primary was a buzz of excitement.
Mrs. Shannalee Aberdeen the School Counselor coordinated a Career Fair for the children.
A variety of community workers spoke to the children, ages five through 11 about their career roles and how they apply certain work ethics in their career. The community workers also explained how basic skills such as mathematics, reading, writing, listening and speaking were used in their careers.
