Expo an ed­u­ca­tion

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

A HOST of in­ter­state and lo­cal uni­ver­si­ties and ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions were rep­re­sented at a Ca­reers Expo at Pen­rhos Col­lege last week.

The an­nual event was open to Pen­rhos Col­lege stu­dents from years 10-12, as well as the wider com­mu­nity and other school stu­dents.

More than 35 ex­hibitors, in­clud­ing the Univer­sity of Mel­bourne, Univer­sity of Syd­ney and Monash Univer­sity, were rep­re­sented at the event.

Pen­rhos Col­lege ca­reers ad­vi­sor Colleen Devlin said she was thrilled with the num­ber of fam­i­lies who at­tended the expo.

“Ex­hibitors were busy through­out the evening an­swer­ing ques­tions and as­sist­ing stu­dents to de­velop a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of the va­ri­ety of ca­reer paths avail­able to sec­ondary school stu­dents,” Ms Devlin said.

Year 10 stu­dent Alex McGuckin said the expo had helped her gain a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of the va­ri­ety of post-school study op­tions.

“Al­though I was over­whelmed with in­for­ma­tion, I feel as though I now have a greater un­der­stand­ing of the dif­fer­ent paths that I have the op­por­tu­nity to take in my fu­ture,” Alex said.
