Year 7 Career Development Session during Genstar, October 14

All Year 7 students will be involved in the Career Development session ‘The World of Work for Women’ on Wednesday 14 October 2015. Each student will be required to interview her mother/significant female person prior to the class – preferably over the upcoming school holidays. All students have been emailed the task to be completed. This is a great opportunity for our girls to find out about the world of work for women and for you and your daughter to have an interesting conversation around this.

Year 12 – Tertiary study applications

VTAC applications opened in August and all Year 12 students have been receiving support from the Career Development Office to put in their preferences during study periods. Extra support has also been provided for those needing a Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS) application, assistance with folio and audition applications, scholarship applications, and for those wanting to study interstate or overseas. It is important students now pay their $29 processing fee through their VTAC account to ensure they receive an ATAR in December as well as an offer in January. For further information, visit the VTAC website.
