‘The best way to predict the future is to create it’

Abraham Lincoln       

The Careers Team, Ms Katrina Smith and Ms Alexi Kayes, can help students in many ways, including with subject selection, work experience, writing resumes, gap year options, part time work and post school pathways.

The Careers Office is open to all students in all year groups. Girls are most welcome to drop in, but at times we can be busy with students. The best thing to do is to send an email indicating your availability (study lessons for the seniors and break times for junior girls) or drop in with your diary to schedule a time.

Please email: careers@loretonh.nsw.edu.au
