Students made their way in small groups around the different areas with many asking questions and taking notes. There were many interactive presentations including Works & Engineering carpenters showing off their different trade tools and supervising students using a drill.

Hospital staff were engaged with a CPR demonstration and tours of an ambulance with many stories being shared by students of previous medical incidents involving themselves or family members and friends.

    Its nice that they did this but I think its a joke. How many of these children’s parent’s are finding it hard to find work in Bermuda (especially competing with cheap foreign labor) but it sounds like it was a good exercise and I wish them the best, but I’m just saying.
