Careers – thank you to our ex-students
Careers Expo 2018
A big thank you to the many alumni who attended our annual Careers Expo in May. The event was a huge success with a record crowd of students and parents. The career showcase and conversations students had with alumni engaged, enlightened and inspired the girls. Many thanks for your time and willingness to share your wisdom and career experiences.
If you would like to be involved next year please email the careers office or phone 02 9473 7424.
Beyond the School Gates working lunch
Thank you also to our ex-students who attended our Year 12 Careers Conference on in June.
The students heard from keynote speakers, alumni Jennifer Single (’93) on ‘Women and the Law’ and Jen Harwood, on personal branding and networking for success. After these presentations, the students had the opportunity to practice what they learnt with ex-students, current parents and teachers at the networking lunch.
After lunch we heard from a panel of recent ex-students: Renee Mifsud (’13), Tara Collender (’14), Harriet Smith (’14), Emily Zammit (’14), Sarah Carr (’15), Sophie Cullen (’15), Annabelle Gray (’15), Georgia McGinness (’15), Chloe Vardy (’15), Samantha Langford (’16) and Maddison Zahra (’16) who spoke of their experiences since finishing school about friendships, part time work, travel and to keep going and never give up.
To finish the day, keynote speaker Sarah Buggy (’03) presented a session titled ‘Don’t sit on your hands’. Sarah told the story of how she recalls listening to a guest speaker in Year 12 and being inspired and motivated to leave Loreto to pursue her goals and make a difference.
The conference was such a wonderful event for Year 12 students and we greatly appreciate the time and effort from our ex-students who attended the day.
