Standing Room Only

The lunch time forums have been a huge success this week with the Curran Theatre filled to capacity.  Girls from Year 10 have been invited to come along and hear from University representatives and ambassadors, many current students.  Finding out about courses, university life, accommodation and scholarships is invaluable in making the post school study decisions and preparing for the future.  Girls are strongly encouraged to come along with an open mind to ALL university talks so that they can compare and contrast university suitability, alternative entry pathways and new courses on offer.


Coming up next week

Tuesday 9 May Macquarie University
Friday 12 May Macquarie University – Global Leaders Entry Program (GLEP)


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

We welcome all students in all years

Anyone can make an appointment with a careers advisor.   We are usually in the office – located in the LRC – before and after school and at recess and lunch. Girls are most welcome to drop in but at times we can be busy with students, so the best thing to do is to send an email indicating your availability or drop in with your diary to schedule a time.
