National Careers Week

As we reflect upon the range of activities provided during National Careers Week, we are thankful for the involvement of our whole school community, old scholars, presenters, and many external organisations. The excitement of primary students echoed through the Undercroft as they  participated in teamwork activities requiring thought, creativity, communication, and attention to detail. Meanwhile, Reception students paraded proudly in their occupational attire, and Year 1 and 2 students were captivated by story time and the chance to explore the work of a Botanist! Year 7 and 8 students were treated to an interactive presentation from Libby Trainor Parker about social media and the importance of positive branding and were thrilled to mingle with a star from the Adelaide Fringe!

The SAC Careers Expo filled the Undercroft for students from Years 9-12 with 25 providers sharing information and advice about vocational and tertiary study, as well as occupational pathway options and employment insights. Spot the robotic dog was a particular favourite as he moved around the expo! It was fantastic to host a number of old scholars as employment and study advocates, and we remain grateful for the time and commitment of all who attended. We would like to acknowledge the following organisations with thanks:

UniSA, Flinders University, Adelaide University, TAFE SA, SAPOL, Defence Force, ICHM, Le Cordon Bleu, Queensford College, Adelaide Institute of Business and Technology, Tabor College, Clipjoint Education, CDW Studios, SAIBT, Academy of Interactive Entertainment, Media Makeup, MTA, Salford College, Tilbrook Rasheed, Sarah Constructions Pty, Rising Sun Pictures, Robert Bird Group Engineering, HerTechPath Inc, GHD, SA Power Networks

Defence Force Leadership Seminar

Congratulations to Year 11 student Prefei and to Year 10 student Abbie who were selected to attend the Defence Force Leadership Seminar on 13 May. It was a wonderful day which included presentations, workshops and group activities focusing on values, communication, positive thinking, planning and resilience. There was also time to talk to current serving members of the Navy, Army and Air Force to learn about roles and leadership opportunities. Prefei and Abbie worked collaboratively with students from other schools and were wonderful advocates of St Aloysius College.
