Presentations

The girls were treated to two informative presentations in the last couple of weeks. First was a presentation by the Master Builders Association who informed the students of the many and varied jobs for women in the construction industry. This presentation was well attended with over 30 students interested in careers that break the stereotype. Next was the presentation by The University of Wollongong. Students heard about courses, university life and scholarships from current university students. An informative presentation which solicited lots of questions from the girls.
