P7 enjoyed a fun week last week learning about the wonderful world of work and about how our many skills and qualities can be applied to future careers. We kicked of the week with the animal me personalities quiz. By answering just a few questions we were able to find the animal that most associated with our personality, the skills and qualities we possess, and some jobs which may work well with these.
Another hot topic of the week was gender equality. Do you think gender can affect how good someone is at their job? Primary 7 certainly do not and neither do the 138 people who filled out our online survey to give us their opinions. We found that although some people still hold stereotypes or have preferences towards gender within certain jobs such as doctors, nurses, teachers or scientists, the overall majority felt that both genders could be as good at any job or career they choose.
