St. Agnes School in West Chester hosted a career day on Feb. 4 as part of its Catholic Schools Week celebration.
Guest speakers included West Chester Mayor Carolyn Comitta and State Sen. Andrew Dinniman, who gave presentations to the fifth through eighth grade students about their careers in public service.
First through eighth grade also had the opportunity to learn from other guest speakers from a wide array of professions including law enforcement, engineering, medicine, television, fashion design, chemistry, information technology and photography.
In addition, students enjoyed other Catholic Schools Week activities including a band concert, variety show, planetarium visits, service projects and prayer services.
