An unprecedented amount of students weren’t able to attend work placements this year, so we needed to accommodate them on-site with a focus on work place readiness.
Thankfully we have just the community to help out with such a task; Janaki Kharel ’18, Hao Truong ’17, Kat Cicarevic ’20, Devangana Sharma ’17, Rachel Pinto ’18, Zoe Pavlides ’20 and Soraya Nusevic ’17 spoke to these Year 10 students about their career pathways, work place expectations and the skills and attributes required to do their job. This was a massive day of Q&As across 6 periods and required a LOT of patience and good humour from the alumni.
Julie Tran ’03 returned in Term 2 to speak to our Y11 Psychology classes about her pathway into psychology and the realities of university and study.
Jennifer Whitfield ’21 also returned to campus for the second time this year to chat with our French students about their studies and university life.
Laura Van Kuelen ’18 came in to speak with students as part of the school’s education week activities; to reminisce about her time at SASC and to share her experiences as a student at the school. Of course, it always turns to university life with students so keen to know what the future holds, and Laura did an incredible job fielding their questions.
A huge THANK YOU goes out to all these wonderful humans who have all volunteered their time and shared their personal experiences of life after school. Their enthusiasm for the alumni program and their involvement in these sessions mean more to our students and school community than they’ll ever know.
