But today the preparations for the students’ future started even earlier at Solomon’s Seventh Day Adventist School. It was a first time event for the fast growing institution and it was one occasion where our news team was able to take a break. Here’s why.

Career Day – the time for these children to hear from the professionals on what it’s like to be a part of the work force and what their prospects are. Booths were set behind the school and these students flocked around every corner. Sheryl Distan is the school principal.

“We have like for the first time a career day here at Solomon’s school and actually we have like ten professionals here; surveyor, forecaster, pharmacist, journalist, Pastor, fire fighter and traffic officers.”

 

But there were so much other aspiring professional at the event…

“I am a doctor, I am a teacher, I am a nurse, I am a banker, I am a teacher and I am a soldier.”

 

Our news team alongside Love FM’s Arturo Cantun set up booth on journalism. And we came across a few freelance reporters at the school.
