Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY -

FROM natur­opaths to lawyers and jour­nal­ists, the world was lit­er­ally an oys­ter for the stu­dents from the Whit­sun­day Chris­tian Col­lege at their re­cent ca­reers expo.

The expo was opened to stu­dents in Years 9-12 at the col­lege’s hall.

Nancee Myles, op­er­a­tions co-or­di­na­tor at ap­pren­tice ser­vice MRAEL Limited in Mackay, spoke about her role and what ser­vices they have on of­fer.

Stu­dents in­ter­ested in health were lucky enough to have lo­cal den­tist Alice Harriot visit as well as ra­dio­g­ra­pher Amelia Friend and natur­opath Rowena Kis­sun from Whit­sun­day Health Clinic speak at the expo.

Sta­tion of­fi­cer Kevin To­mas from Air­lie Beach Fire and Res­cue and Whit­sun­day Po­lice’s Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Simon Wal­ter also lit up eyes with their inspiring roles.

The stu­dents were ex­posed to an ar­ray of ca­reers with vis­i­tors from the Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil, McDon­ald’s, Macrossan and Amiet So­lic­i­tors, Can­non­vale Tafe, Ship­wrecked Seafood Bar and Grill and Aus­tralian Hair and Beauty as well.

IN­FOR­MA­TIVE AND INSPIRING: Rowena Kis­sun from Whit­sun­day Health Clinic sat down and pro­vided a per­sonal in­sight to stu­dents in­ter­ested in a ca­reer in health.
