  • Careers Activities in registration time each day
  • Careers Treasure Hunt – visit the Careers Room next to the library each day and answer the question you will find there, using the resources provided.  Post your answers for the whole week in the box provided in the Careers Room by Monday 9th March. The first correct answer drawn in each year group will win £10 of shopping vouchers!
  • Careers drop-in in the Careers Room at break every day this week  - a different focus each day – with Briony and Steve, the Oaklands careers advisers,  and Mrs Payne, the careers co-ordinator at school:
