Students broaden their career opportunities

Students from Years 10 and 12 attended the recent Sydney Schools Careers Convention at Sydney Grammar School.

The careers event was organised by the Careers advisers of St Andrews, Sydney Grammar School and Mrs Glynis Martin from IGS. The convention included stalls from universities and colleges both local interstate and overseas , a series of interesting lectures as well as advisers for one on one career discussions. 

Year 10 student Perri Fearnley said she gained a lot of information from the different universities and signed up to many of their online newsletters.

“They have information on upcoming Open Days and workshops,” Perri said.

“This will keep me informed about courses to study in the future.”

Lili Digweed, also from Year 10, said the staff at the stalls were really helpful and friendly.”

“The booklets they gave us were easy to understand and broad as they covered everything I needed to know,” she said.

“The information suited people who knew what they wanted to do in the future or me who hasn’t decided.”

And Max from Year 12 said he appreciated the opportunity to speak with the Career Advisers about pathways.
