Careers Expo 2017 – An invitation to past and current parents and ex-students to be an exhibitor at our Careers Expo

The Loreto Normanhurst Careers Expo is on Tuesday 14 March from 7:00pm.

The aim of the evening is for  students to talk with professionals  who can provide valuable information about their occupation and the training that is required to do that occupation. It is an informal evening without presentations; you will be sitting at a table and students with their parents will simply approach you for discussion.

If you feel you would be interested in attending our evening as an exhibitor or if you would like further information please either call to discuss or email. 

Email Ms Donnan  or Ms Smith  or call us on 9473 7424.


Would you like to make an appointment with a careers advisor?

The Careers office is open to all students across all year groups. We are usually in the office – located in the LRC – before and after school and at recess and lunch. Students  are most welcome to drop in but at times we can be busy, so the best thing to do is to send an email indicating your availability or drop in with your diary to schedule a time.

Please note our  new email address:
