Today a group of 31 kids went on a trip into a city for a office tour and some activities to the KPMG tower in auckland city. We left early in the morning around 9:00-9:10 am and it took around 20 minutes to get to our destination. First we had to go through an introduction with various amounts of people who work there. KPMG is all about accounting and fanancial advisors.
Next we went on an office tour around the whole building and all the floors looked exactly the same with a lot of office moniters and little cubic spaces for the meetings and zoom calls. we went in groups of 5-6-7 people and my group were the only year 8 boys group. We saw the CEO of the whole company doing a zoom call in one of the cubic rooms so he was isolated.
Next we went on several different floors with the same thing over and over again. We finished that and came back to this room called the infinity room and it is a room where the visitors come and/or hang out. We went in there for our morning tea and it was Sausage rolls with tomato sauce and scones with jam and whipped cream. it was super delicious.
We went and did our first activity and it was about photoshopping. so first we went and took a green screen picture in random costumes we found on a table and we could choose through a various amount of background pictures for our photoshop background. There was a photoshop profession who did all 31 of our pictures and we gave her a huge thank you after that.
Then we had our lunch staright after that. The lunch we got served Chicken tenders, Small burgers on sticks, Egg and lettuce salad (Which was surprisingly delicous) also we had fruit kebabs with more orange juice for a drink. We could also dive in for seconds if we were even more hungry.
The next activity we did was playdough making into a person so we could make an animation with photos of the playdough man moving constantly. I couldn’t finish it so I just played around with it. Finally we packed up and said a huge thank you to the staff of the company and overall, this was an amazing experience on seeing what it’s like to see what it’s like to be an accountant.
