Presentation about UTS Accounting Scholarships

Two past Bethany students Katerina Meliss (HSC 2016) and Paige Perry (HSC 2017) presented information about the UTS Accounting Scholarship. Both young ladies have been awarded the scholarship and spoke of the many benefits associated with this opportunity. Current students were surprised to learn that the scholarship provided an opportunity to study and learn valuable on the job skills while benefitting from the financial subsidy.

JobJump Presentation

In conjunction with Marist College Kogarah, I organised a presentation by the founder of the website JobJump. This is a very useful site for students and parents to research post school options. The information presented on the night helped the students and their parents access valuable information that will go a long way in making their transition to post school studies/careers that much easier.

Parent review of the JobJump presentation

Dear Elizabeth

Thank you for organising the JobJump session at Kogarah Marist. A very useful session on how to use the site. The site is great for working out what careers are available for students and then what courses and places they can study for their chosen careers. I particularly like the section that shows the information sessions or open days coming up for all courses. I have registered to receive news on my daughters’ career interests from the various universities.

 Thank you for the efforts made to set this up.

 Regards Joanne Mullen (mother of Georgia McGilchrist of Year 12)
