Rembrandt Primary Rembrandt Primary Career Day at Multotec

Rembrandt Park Primary held a Career Day on 15 October 2012 at Multotec in Johannesburg, as a run-up to the schools official Career Day. The Multotec Group was established more than thirty years ago and its core business is the supply of products and services to the mining, mineral beneficiation and power generation industries.  110 learners, 4 teachers and Principal Elizabeth Seema attended the Career Day. Everyone was given visitor tags, stationery and mineral water on arrival which made the learners feel very important and welcomed by the friendly staff of Multotec.

 
The session began with a welcome and then presentations by individuals within the company who were involved in various careers such as finance, human resource management, engineers, fitters and turners and many more. The emphasis was that not all of us will end up with a degree, but practical work is vital and is very much in demand in many industries. 
 
The learners were allowed to ask questions after each presentation. The questions were very thought provoking, intelligent and clarified many details of the various careers on display.  The learners and teaching staff then boarded the bus to view other areas of the company to see aspects of the production capacities that it has. After a lovely lunch they returned to school in time for the final bell of the day and to prepare for the official Career Day to be hosted the next day.
 
“The children certainly learned a lot and it was good to take them to a company environment, rather than to just tell them about it.” Principal Elizabeth Seema said.
 
The Principal, staff and learners of Rembrandt Primary School would like to thank everyone at Multotec involved with facilitating this event, especially Bernadette and Thomas and they look forward to a continued relationship with Multotec.
