THOUSANDS OF bright-eyed secondary school students are expected to visit the University of the West Indies to gain knowledge on hundreds of career choices.

The two-day annual event kicked off today with an opening ceremony in Lecture Theatre 2.

It was attended by education officials, including Senator Harcourt Husbands, BAGC president Saul Leacock, president of the Barbados Association of Principals of Public Secondary Schools Vere Parris and Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Education, Dr Jennifer Obidah.

After the ceremony, the students soaked up the knowledge from professionals.
