THE Year 6 pupils at St Helen’s Primary School, in Durham Street, Hartlepool, already have an idea of how they want to spend their working life.

Megan Fenny, 10, said: “I would like to be a beautician when I leave school.

“I really like putting on make-up and things like that, so I would enjoy that.

“I am just going to practice a lot so I am very good at it.”

Jack Turner, 11, dreams of becoming a professional footballer.

He said: “I would love to be a footballer and I would want to play for Chelsea.

“I play for Pools Youth now and my favourite Hartlepool United player is James Brown.

“If I wasn’t a footballer I would like to take up athletics.”

Olivia Robson, 10, said: “I want to be an author when I grow up.

“I like reading, especially fiction books. Harry Potter is one of my favourites, I loved reading them.

“We do a lot of story writing in school so I get a lot of practice.”

Liam Stothart, 10, said: “I want do something to do with professional sport. I would love to become a footballer.

“I play for Greatham now and the school as well, my dream would be to play for Man Utd. I don’t really know what I would want to do if I didn’t become a footballer.”

Jay McLean, 10, said: “I would like to be a footballer and play for Hartlepool United.

“If I didn’t make it as a footballer I would want to be a plumber.

“My uncle does roofing so I think I would enjoy that as well.

“But I would like to go to university, I would want to go to Durham so I wasn’t far from home.”

Ebony Skidmore, 10, said: “I want to be a restaurant owner or maybe a barrister.

“I like cooking and being argumentative so either of them would suit me.

“If I was going to be a barrister I would have to go to university.

“It wouldn’t bother me if I had to leave Hartlepool to go to university or to open a restaurant.”
