One Planet school believes that there are unique gems (talents and capabilities) hidden within every child. The goal of education at One Planet, is to unravel the unique potential hidden in every child.


This was clearly apparent on their recent One Planet International School’s 2018 Career Day which was a resounding success — an educational and inspirational event. One Planet International School is centered around the notion of service, and that is what Career Day was all about. A main goal for the event was to expose students to as many service-based careers as possible and to provide an opportunity for the students to initiate meaningful conversations with their parents about their contribution to society!


Over 40 professional parents in a diverse array of fields inspired students by setting up a simulating work environment at the school. Some of the careers profiled included: Lawyers conducting a mock trial, Heart and plastic surgeons demonstrating a variety of skills from routine check-ups to performing stitches, An architectural area in which students built their own model houses, Film producers who wrote a script for students and involved them in the shooting and production of a movie, Three captains from Ethiopian Airlines who fly all over the world, Diplomats plus other government officials, Anthropologists from Addis Ababa University, Geneticists, Electrical, Civil, Mechanical and Software engineers, Artists, Business men and women, and many others!


Students and parents (from a diverse range of professions) alike enjoyed this unique event. A heart surgeon stated “the fact that the students are exposed to diverse professions at such a young age…is great,” and a Female Judge said that the event clearly “brought something meaningful and educational for the kids.” Many parents also agreed that “these kinds of opportunities” to learn about different careers at such a young age were not offered when they were in school and from a Cinematographer “if a child knows what he or she wants to do early in life, in the future, their effect or contribution will be much more”
