Futures Breakfast for Year 12 Students
On Thursday 2 November, Year 12 students had the opportunity to meet with industry and business representatives over breakfast and to hear from last year’s graduates. Graduates discussed their chosen pathways, what their expectations were after leaving College and how their future has unfolded following ‘Life after Sheldon College’.
The Futures Breakfast gave students an opportunity to find out first-hand information about their chosen field of study and future professions. At this year’s breakfast students were able to connect with representatives from the Australian Wings Academy, Azentro, BAAM Ecological Consultants, Bornhorst and Ward, Brisbane Festival, Cholesterol Care Australia, Civil Dimensions, CSIRO, Griffith University, McCarthy Drurie Lawyers, MEGT Apprenticeships Network, Penny Lane Bridal, Queensland Ambulance Service, Redland City Bulletin, Scope Clinical Services and St Andrew's War Memorial Hospital.
Guests at the breakfast were welcomed by the Chair of the Alumni Board Mr Matthiew Hogg, followed by presentations from Alumni panel guests Georgia Blair, Paige Goldman, Brandon James and Andrew Wehl.
Mrs Diane Vandermeer, Director of Senior Schooling said, “At Sheldon College we recognise that it’s very important for current Year 12 students to hear differing opinions in regard to career pathways and financial arrangements, to better enable them to make informed choices”. The Futures Breakfast is an important event which is part of a broader Senior Schooling program tailored to students in Years 10 to 12.
Sheldon College extends special thanks to alumni panellists and industry representatives for taking the time and effort to attend the breakfast and for sharing their experiences and knowledge with Sheldon College students.
