Start Ca­reer expo grows by the year


More than 1500 South Waikato stu­dents have a bet­ter idea of what they want to do with life af­ter at­tend­ing the Start Ca­reer and Start Liv­ing Expo.

Stu­dents from For­est View High School, Toko­roa High School and Pu­taruru Col­lege were bused down to the expo that packed out the South Waikato Sports and Events Cen­tre.

More than 50 ex­hibitors lined the walls, with ev­ery­thing from the de­fence forces to South Seas Films on dis­play.

Or­gan­iser Tracey Dean said they had ex­hibitors from all over the coun­try at­tend, in­clud­ing Can­ter­bury Univer­sity and the Manukau In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy.

‘‘This is a walk­ing South Waikato life expo. It’s far more pow­er­ful than a ca­reers expo.’’

Ev­ery year the event is grow­ing, she said.

‘‘There were about 20 ex­hibitors the first year. It just keeps get­ting big­ger and big­ger.’’

Zoe Brindle, Cly­dille Ab­bott, Sta­cia Storer-Tilby and Sha­nia Tu­ruwhenua con­sider what’s best for them.
