We felt inspired by Senior Constable Tim Thomson, as he shared with us the fact that he made the decision to become a policeman when he was at primary school. We enjoyed sitting in the police car and sending a message to VKC from Navarre.
The students from Navarre Primary School, along with the pre-schoolers from its In-Venue Family Day Care Centre, joined forces to celebrate careers recently.
The school marked Education Week, which ran from May 19-25, with the students focusing on career choices.
Parents, staff and community members enjoyed hearing from each of the students and pre-schoolers, as they explained their aspirations and their reasons for wanting to pursue their career of choice.
We had a vet with a pony, with a cut leg requiring an IV drip. The vet explained the importance of an IV in managing the patient's recovery.
She also showed a variety of instruments that help her to do her job, such as a syringe, bandaids, medicine and of course a stethoscope!
We had an aspiring game designer who outlined the technology he required to do his job, including a laptop, phone and iPad.
A makeup artist and hair stylist were both on hand to keep us all looking at our best as the morning progressed, and who could forget the teacher and the farmer who came along to lend a hand wearing the obligatory glasses and Akubra hat respectively.
Football or course featured, with a Geelong football player explaining how Gary Ablett had handballed to him, and he in turn then kicked a goal!
We felt that the "world was our oyster", learning that we can all follow our dreams if we are prepared to work hard.
