They say by the time these Noosaville Primary students finish school, at least sixty five percent of the occupations won’t have been invented yet. Students at Noosaville State School though are already well ahead of the game thinking about what occupation they want to be ‘when they grow up’. Celebrations at the end of the school term involved all students dressing up as their chosen future occupation. The fun dress up day was organised by the school’s student council leaders, to raise funds for much needed sporting and musical equipment for the school.
Student council leaders, Taylor and Jade said that the day was a huge success with everyone participating in the free dress day. Occupations ranged from doctors, scientists, vets, palaeontologists, robotics software engineers, teachers, builders and break dancers.
Teacher in charge of Noosaville’s student council, Julie Friend said that, ‘The student council was very active in the school with fundraising events held each school term and the students having input into the many events that the school holds each year.”
“It was also great to hear the conversations that students were having in classes, discussing all the types of occupations they might have in the future.” The day was a huge success as evidenced by the creativity and thought that students and staff went to in designing and discussing their costumes.
