Universities Show Case + Careers Evening

Last Tuesday, our Year 12 students had the opportunity to attend the “Universities Show Case” to hear about the exciting opportunities for those wishing to continue their studies through TAFE, University, or the Armed Forces.  Representatives from Universities as far north as Central Queensland University and south as the University of New England were present to field questions and inspire our soon to be graduates about the opportunities available at the various institutions.  They were also on hand to explain the differences between school and university life, as well as some of the challenges and rewards experienced when embarking upon a tertiary pathway.

For many of our Year 12 students, the afternoon provided a little more clarity around the myriad of choices that await them at the end of this year.  A natural extension of the “Universities Show Case” is our Careers Evening which will be held on the 11 of July in the Assembly Hall.  An invitation will be forwarded to parents and students in the very near future, as well as a call for expressions of interest from our parent body and the Past Students’ Association.  I look forward to emulating the success of last year’s event in a larger setting, to allow all our Year 10-12 students to attend with their families.

Should you wish to contribute to the evening by speaking to the students about what your profession entails, how you got there and any other information that you feel is relevant, would you please email me at to express an interest?  I look forward to hearing from you soon.
