The school subscribes to two publications called ‘CareerNews’ that collates information about tertiary courses, upcoming events and vocational insights that assist students with their career planning. Copies will be added to the Careers tab on the Portal. Senior College students are also emailed a copy of the CareerNews content each fortnight so that they can easily access material from the hyperlinks. The first edition is now available.
During the year, the Careers Department will be holding regular Career Chats for Senior College students and the first one will be held at lunch time on Tuesday 28 February with a focus on Year 12 applications overseas.
Work Experience Program
Year 10 students will be participating in the Work Experience Program from Monday 19 to Friday 23 June. Students are required to organise a placement before the end of Term 1. If additional time is required then please contact Ms Julie Ennor (Work Experience Co-ordinator) or myself in the Careers Department.
Students are required to return the initial form no later than Friday 31 March, which is the last day of Term 1. An official Work Experience package will then be prepared and sent to the employer for their signature.
Changes to Obtaining a Tax File Number
A reminder that The Australian Taxation Office has altered the application process for obtaining a Tax File Number. Schools can no longer process applications for students. The following link provides details about the new procedures that are similar to applying for a passport.
