The students have had the opportunity to hear about two different post school options to date. On Wednesday 8th March we had a presentation from Professional Cadetships Australia who informed students of the opportunity to study, work and gain valuable work place experience and earn an income at the same time. Wednesday 15th March was a presentation from the Australian Catholic University who informed students of the various course options available to them at the University. These are the start of many other presentations I will be organising in the coming months and I urge you to encourage your daughters to attend so as they can make informed decisions about their future post school options.
