 Year 12 Career Conference – ‘Life after Loreto’

 On Thursday, 27 June, Year 12 students had an opportunity to look beyond Year 12 and the HSC and consider life after Graduation.

The day offered insights into current industry trends, career tools and employer expectations from Kathryn Taylor, at Turning Point Consulting.

We were also delighted to welcome back a number of Loreto Normanhurst alumni. The ex-students joined our Year 12’s in round table mentoring discussions and shared their personal stories of success and failure. The Year 12’s had the opportunity to ask their ‘pressing questions’ about work, study, transition from school and more.

The day was a fantastic success with excellent feedback from the students and alumni involved. A big thank you to all who assisted with the day.

 

Careers Guest Speakers at School during Lunchtime

During the last 4 months, Loreto Normanhurst Careers has hosted 14 different lunchtime guest speakers, including universities, colleges, internship and GAP providers.

Our Year 10-12 students showed great interest in exploring their career options, with many excellent, varied questions being asked.

We encourage all the girls to attend tertiary provider open days throughout August and September, to further insights to life on campus.

Our next lunch time presentation will be in week 1 of term 3 – 23 July – TAFE NSW.
