Careers Update

Welcome back to what promises to be another busy school term. Along with the many presentations I have planned for this term during lunchtimes,  I, along with Mr. Fitzpatrick, the VET Coordinator at Marist College Kogarah have planned an Information Evening which will look at how to utilise the JobJump website to source information on subject selections, post school options, scholarships and much more.

This is an opportunity for both students and parents to learn more about where to source information that will assist students in making informed decisions about their subject choices and future directions post school.  (Refer to the attached flyer)
