Learners of Dikubu Primary School in Mookgophong bid farewell the Grade 7 Class of 2017, dressed up for the future during what also doubled up as a career dress-up day.

The event, held at the Mookgophong Community Hall on Friday, 20 October, was attended by learners, educators and parents.

The learners were required to exchange their school uniform for attire showcasing their future career choice, and the young ones did not disappoint.

On that colourful Friday the Mookgophong Community Hall premises resembled a potpourri of careers ranging from a wannabe police officer, civil engineer, medical doctors to educators.

Dikubu Primary School headmaster, Mdungaza Mahlahlani, said the main objective of the event was to encourage learners to identify and choose their careers while it was still early in the schooldays. 

The principal was also delighted to observe there were also learners who considered pursuing teaching as a profession. 

“If you do not take interest in the teaching profession, who will educate your offspring in future? It is important that some of you are considering taking teaching as a career option,” he said, as one of the speakers at the event. 

Guest speaker for the day Mary Maswanganye, who works for the Department of Public Works as a regional and town planner by profession, encouraged the learners to choose their careers wisely, and to further seek more information on their ambitious professions.

She said this will help them to be sure if it was indeed what they wanted to do after they completed their studies.
