  • Career taster days
  • Tertiary education information sessions and expo
  • Employer engagement fair
  • Defence Force base visits
  • STAR short courses
  • Gateway to Work programme

We provide information sessions about:

  • Scholarships
  • Subject selection
  • Loans and allowances
  • Tertiary providers
  • Driver licensing
  • CV preparation
  • Employment opportunities

Students expand their career ideas, and research the compatibility of different occupations throughout their time at the high school.
