College tries on different hats
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.
