Year 8 GO 4 IT 2018

On Wednesday 10th January, Penrice Academy once again opened its doors to a range of local and regional industry experts for Year 8 GO 4 IT Day.

The day saw our Year 8s taking part in activities across the school, meeting professionals, improving skills and trying their hand at new things. GO 4 It day marks the start of our Options Process and each year gives our students plenty to think about.

Activities included learning about cattle and grazing with James Kittow Butchery, Crime Scene Investigation with the Devon and Cornwall Police, learning CPR with Treliske, hair and makeup with Cornwall College and much, much more.

Mrs Selley, Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance/Work Experience Lead at Penrice said: “Every year our GO 4 IT Event gives Year 8 a fantastic insight into the world of work and this year was no different. They embraced the day, they asked questions and they got everything they could out of it. Thanks and well done for a great day.”

Thank you to the local companies and colleges for their support with this event.
