As part of their transition into Senior College our Year 9 boys have begun a number of career orientated sessions to go along with the information sessions based around their options at school in their senior years. On Tuesday 10th May Ms Ord from our Careers Department spoke to the boys about personalities, likes, dislikes, etc. She talked about the importance of following passions when it comes to career choice whilst still understanding the importance of balance in your approach to subjects at school. They need to now start thinking about VCE or IB or VET, university or Tafe, or apprenticeships or the workforce. Many, many options for our boys to start thinking about and to look forward to. During the session the boys also completed a task that helped them to see the different personality types that they have and to which fields of career these traits would be suited to. By no means was it suggesting to them what they will be when they grow up but it did provide them with an opportunity to think about all of the different options they will have to choose from. There will be more of these sessions throughout the year including our Pathways Evening and Subject Showcase Evening where both parents and students can find out more information.
