Their date with destiny
Students gain insight into future
MONTO State High School students have had a taste of what awaits them after their school days.
As part of the school’s Beacon program 34 students, mainly Year 10, attended the 2013 Speed Careering event.
Representatives of different occupations were gathered to spend seven minutes with groups of students.
These occupations included journalist, police officer, school principal, finance director, civil engineer and army officer.
The school’s Beacon co-ordinator, Stacey Delaney O’Reilly, said it was the second year Speed Careering had been held and it would now become an annual event.
“We sent letters of invitation to different businesses and were lucky to get 10 presenters for this year’s event. That’s more than last year so its excellent to see it growing.
“For the students I think they enjoyed meeting real world people and seeing what’s out there, what they can do and how to do it.”
