Cool Stuff to Do When You Leave School

A Park Ranger working with nature, an Apprentice Builder and a BCITO business development advisor, were three of the guests Year 11 students heard from at the Future Pathways event in the Hall on Wednesday 7 April. The 350 students enjoyed the Kahoot challenges arising from their knowledge about the skills required to work in a wide range of job roles within the Primary Industries and the Construction and Infrastructure Industries.

Thank you to the guests, to Shaun our Master of Ceremonies and to the Career Development Company for opening our student’s eyes to future employment opportunities.
