5 July – The day started with groups of 5 pupils working together on the Roller-coaster challenge, where they build a course from paper and card for a marble to go down. The pupils then undertook a series of individual tasks, including multiple one on one interviews, writing, and presentation activities which were assessed, as they looked to earn a job offer from the fictitious King’s Consulting organisation.

In the afternoon, the top 10 candidates were invited to a panel interview and the successful applicants were awarded cash prizes kindly donated by Ryland Communications and the Old Roffensian Society.

This successful day in preparing pupils for life outside of King’s, is only possible due to the support of parents and ORs who give up a valuable day to monitor and work with the pupils.
