08 Mar Year 9 Girls
On Wednesday 13th February we had the fortunate opportunity to go and visit London City Airport with 25 Year 9 girls. Whilst we were there we received a tour of the airport and learnt about the different careers that are on offer there. The students were asked to complete personality questionnaires which matched them with an ideal job, but importantly, gave them a person specification on themselves.
All students were then put into groups to complete 30 second presentations on a range of random topics including socks and the weather. Once we had finished our talk from the Community Outreach lead at the airport it was time for the challenge to begin. Students (in groups) have four weeks to put together a proposal presentation for the new terminal building, specifically they have 3 units to fill. The next leg of the competition will take place on the 13th March in school where they will present their findings and plans to an airport advisor. The winner of this round will be invited back to the airport to compete against nine other schools to be in with a chance of an airside airport tour and Westfield vouchers!
Best of luck girls!
