Year 8 Stereotyping event

Our Y8 Stereotyping got off to a flying start on the morning of Tuesday 9th July. We were fortunate to welcome 12 guests from a wide range of job and career backgrounds. The format of the day was: our guests sat with groups of students and the students had to ask questions to try to determine what job or career path they came from. We had asked our guests to leave us for a short time so that they could transform themselves into their work attire. There were some very inventive guesses coming from our students. Our guests then re-entered the hall to the amazed gasps of our students. Cries of ‘we were right’ or ‘wow I would never have guessed that’.  Feedback from students indicated that they had really enjoyed the event and had learned a lot about the diversity and complexity of the jobs and careers represented.

We would like to give a huge thank you to our guests for giving up their time to support us today.
