SCHOOLchildren were inspired to follow their ambitions at a careers day.

Year Five and Six children at Phoenix Primary School and Nursery, in Laindon, had talks from police officers, paramedics, a service delivery manager from Manheim Auctions Ltd, a project manager and field manager from UK Power Networks and three reps from Toni & Guy.

Organiser Mandy Watson said: “Our upper KS2 children have enjoyed and learned from another fantastic careers day.”
