Careers

Did You Know?

We have many staff members who have had a variety of careers before they discovered teaching? –

Law, Physiotherapy, Acting, Social Work, Engineering, Genetics, Catering to name a few.  This week during Year 9 Integrated lessons students had the opportunity to hear from a panel of staff who shared their career journey’s to date.   The girls heard about failure, wrong choices, chance events that impacted a career path, parental pressure and expectations to pursue a career and the successes and passion that blossomed.  It was a wonderful insight into career journeys and the possible challenges and trials that may be faced in the future.

We would like to thank the staff who gave up their time to share their story with the girls.
