Students were encouraged to follow their passions during a special careers week at a Collier Row primary school.
Crownfield Junior School in White Hart Lane, Collier Row organised an Aspirations Week for their students from Monday, March 19 to Friday, March 23.
Diane Gordon and Samantha Sanders organised the event.
Mrs Gordon told the Recorder: “We live in a very celebrity driven culture, but having a job which might not make you famous, doesn’t mean that you’re not a successful person.
“Ultimately Aspirations Week is about re-defining success.”
Students heard from employees at Network Rail, Transport for London and from the Mayor of Havering, Councillor Linda van den Hende and the deputy Mayor, Cllr Dilip Patel.
“It’s surprising to see the impact, for example the number of students who want to be engineers after the week,” said Mrs Gordon.
“We encourage them to follow their passions, which doesn’t always have to culminate in being on television.”
