As part of our Integrated Studies topic for Term 3 the Years 1 and 2 Junior School students at Belmont enjoyed participating in an Occupations Day Expo, where they came along dressed in costume, appropriate to their chosen occupation.
Due to our parent community volunteering their services, we were able to offer a variety of exciting opportunities for the children to experience first hand. These included:
cooking crepes with a chef, using a hammer, nails and wood to build a vehicle under the instruction of builder, having a coloured hair makeover with a qualified hairdresser (even our Principal participated), a visit from the Belmont Fire station with the fire truck, and a session with a forensic police officer, where fingerprints were taken.
Being an active participant in each of the above activities allowed the students to gain a greater understanding of the roles and responsibilities involved with each occupation.
