PUPILS at a Bromsgrove school have been given some help as they plan their future careers.

Year eight pupils from St John’s Middle School, in Watt Close, took part in the school's annual careers day yesterday, (May 23).

The day is designed to help youngsters nearing the end of their time at the school, and looking ahead to high school and their GCSEs.

People from different careers including the police, the RAF, and the Blue Cross, dropped into the school for the special event.

Youngsters also had the chance to speak to representatives from law, engineering, graphic design, trading standards and the building industry.

After listening to talks from the guests, pupils had the chance to get a taste of the careers by designing logos, food testing, and even constructing a raised brick planter.

Rachel Bourne, from the school, said: “They really made our guest speakers welcome and took on board the valuable advice they had to offer.

“It was wonderful to see them trying new things and thinking about their future ambitions.”
