GRADE 7 pupils from Trubel Primary participated in a Career Simulation Day on September 21. Pupils addressed the assembly explaining what career they have chosen and why.
Few professionals - from different professions - graced the event and addressed the pupils.

Popular Belvedere doctor, Strini Subroyen explained how earning good grades at school and being passionate was a prerequisite to becoming a doctor, a career many indicated they wished to follow.
Those pupils who wanted to become lawyers were fascinated by state prosecutor Pravin Naidoo’s honest account of his journey to the top. He stressed that an impoverished background was no excuse as well as how important reading and choosing the right friends were in his life.

The pupils were also exposed to a completely new career by horticulturist Ramu Govender.
He explained what his job entails and how litter damages our precious environment.

Sarika Pillay from SizaBantu Plumbers explained how she got started and is involved in many community projects and was willing to help pupils interested in her field.

Constable Lance Naidoo from Tongaat SAPS showed the equipment that police use which fascinated the pupils as many wanted to become police officers.

Marlina Hunsraj, a radiographer, explained to the pupils that radiography was another choice in the medical field and how important X-rays and scans are in determining the root of some health problems.

Many pupils chose to become teachers and ex-principal Mr JT Chetty’s journey inspired pupils.
He told them that teachers are passionate and hardworking professionals whose reward involved watching their pupils become productive in society.

Nirasha Deepnarain, a financial advisor gave pupils a quiz about finance.
She explained how at a young age she had decided that she was going to be successful and make her dream a reality through hard work.
A professional nurse from the Tongaat Health Clinic, Mr Faya highlighted some of the qualities one needs to become a nurse - patience and compassion was of utmost importance.

Superintendent of education in the Billy Nair Circuit, Selvan Chetty was upbeat and highly impressed with the formal function for Grade 7 pupils.
