In the final week of Term 1, Year 11 students participated in the Horizons Week program, three jam packed days designed to help students to be job and career ready.
The program commenced with an alumnae panel session whereby each alumna spoke about their personal career journey, followed by a Q&A session. Questions included: tips on choosing subjects and tertiary courses, switching career paths, as well as accepting the risk and challenges involved with following your dreams and passions.
In the first two days, students participated in a series of workshops on money management, resume writing, LinkedIn profile setup and tips to ace group job interviews.
The final day was spent visiting RMIT University and the University of Melbourne where students learnt more about life as a university student, different courses on offer, pathway programs and graduate success stories.
Our Year 11 students were so engaged and asked many questions. They have certainly commenced their preparation for some of the big decisions that they will be making next year.
