News from Careers

Choosing a university or tertiary option is a major decision for many of our students.

Open Days are designed to give them the information they need to make a well-informed choice.

Expert staff and current students will be on hand to answer questions about specific courses, entry requirements, internships, study tours and how each course can lead to the job students really want. NOTE: If you plan to apply for a course involving an interview/folio presentation/ audition as part of the selection process, attendance is A MUST! You might be asked what you learned at Open Day.

Fingerprint Me

On Wednesday morning the Year 9’s, 10’s and 11’s attended a presentation by Peter Coronica from Fingerprint Me. It was an excellent and thought provoking presentation where Peter gave advice and shared his knowledge to the students on getting their foot through the door in the competitive world of work.
