Loreto Normanhurst ‘Careers Week’

We are pleased to remind all our students that next week is LN Careers Week.

The Careers team have designed a large amount of activities to celebrate Career paths, and encourage career development and exploration.

All year groups are invited to attend the activities.

Some of the activities of interest will include:

  • Nursing/Paramedics visit from University of Tasmania (Monday lunchtime – Gym) – this will involve an ambulance being onsite as a demonstration on the Gym apron.
  • Teacher’s Career Path Panel at which teachers will be talking about their own career journey before joining Loreto Normanhurst. Can students guess which of your teachers was a lawyer? A published scientist? Who worked in hospitality? And more…  (Tuesday lunchtime – Curran Theatre)
  • Mock Interview afternoon when students will be able to participate in a practice interview. (Wednesday afternoon)
  • Medicine lunchtime market with visitors from many universities (Friday lunchtime – GBC Level 3)
  • Careers Competition that you can enter throughout the week.
  • Family Career Conversation which will be sent next week to all families and we encourage you to chat about Careers with your family members.

We look forward to celebrating Careers Week with our community.
