On Monday, our Year 10 students participated in the Pathways Planning Day, a dedicated event aimed at helping them make informed decisions about their future academic and career paths. Throughout the day, students engaged in various activities designed to guide them in considering the options for their final years of school and beyond.
In addition to thinking further about whether they will study the IB (International Baccalaureate) or the VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education) in Year 11 and 12, students chose between sessions on agriculture, architecture, business, engineering, health and space science.
The day culminated for Year 10s with a Careers Expo where they could meet with representatives from 30 or so organisations including the Australian Defence Force, design colleges, sports colleges a range of TAFEs, the University of Tasmania, and Victorian universities. After school, Year 11 and 12 students and parents had the opportunity to attend the Careers Expo.
The Pathways Planning Day is an important part of the way we support students think about their interests, subjects they might study and potential careers.
This term our Year 10 students have met individually with their Careers Practitioner and had the opportunity to attend information sessions about the IB and the VCE. Our 2024 information evening at the start of next term is another important chance for our Year 10 students (and parents) to think further and consult with School leaders and subject experts before finalising their preferred 2024 Year 11 course.
