Bishop’s go bananas with careers
Year 9 win Tesco’s vouchers in Career Skills Competition
Back in March, Year 9 enjoyed the expertise of some of our local large and small businesses during a Career Skills Day. The skills learnt and practiced ranged from building that first CV to personality questionnaires and thinking about the skills needed in interviews. One of our guest businesses, Tesco, ran a session on logistics – “Go Bananas Supply Chain Workshop”. There were bananas everywhere that day in Bishop’s! Tesco ran this as a competition and the results are now in! The team Bananarama from 9 Hadid came up with the highest number of jobs related to a banana… the mind boggles! They found 205 jobs! Tesco provided prizes of £5 gift vouchers. Sam Sullivan of Tesco commented ” We had a great day with your fantastic students – they really engaged in all the activities. Enthusiasm and a “can do ” attitude is great to see in Year 9.”
Well done to the following pupils: Isobel R, Anjali P, Daniella O, Jayla H, Tenzin Y, Isabelle T, Chloe K, Chloe A, Rihanna K, Amelia A, Tegan J, Ellie S, Evie J.
Look out for the Tesco team as they come back in June to deliver a Year 7 workshop with Bishop’s!
