The Sydney CBD Schools Careers Convention will be held on Monday 3rd June, from 3.00pm to 7.00pm in the Palladium building for boys in Forms IV, V and VI and their parents. It will be held jointly with St Mary’s Cathedral College, St Andrew’s Cathedral School, Sydney Conservatorium of Music High School and International Grammar School. The convention will have three facets. In the School gymnasium from 3.00pm, the major universities will be present along with a number of private tertiary education providers. In the Palladium Theatre and TNH from 4.00pm there will be a series of talks from faculty representatives and from 5.00pm to 7.00pm, in the Palladium classrooms, advisers from many career and university areas will be available for consultation. If you can assist with this consulting, in your own career area, then please contact me by email as detailed below.
Career testing is offered to all boys in Form IV. This is an opportunity for Form IV boys to undertake Career Voyage, a careers guidance program. The program uses a boy’s interests and preferences to make twenty job suggestions. Career Voyage can also be useful in preparation for the Career’s Convention and in guiding subject choice for Form V.
Boys who are interested in applying for tertiary education scholarships should be aware that attributes are sought that often go well beyond academic performance. These may include creativity, leadership, self-motivation and communication skills. It is therefore important that boys in Forms V and VI continue with their extra-curricular activities.
Course and Careers advice and Tax File Number applications are available from the careers master, Mr Whild in SB4 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. University and course information is also available in the School Library and on the School website via links to the universities.
