Our Year 11 students came to school looking extremely smart. Interviews took place in the LRC; students had a nervous time in the ‘waiting room’ outside, before being called in for their 20 minute appointment. They had so much to think about: how to make a good first impression and how to convey their passion for their chosen career – and how to control their nerves! Most students found the experience valuable and said they felt more at ease once the interview had begun. Some interviewers were so impressed by our students, they would have offered them jobs!

We are extremely grateful to all the employers who gave up their valuable time to volunteer their time to make the day such a success. It has given our students an extremely valuable experience that they will learn from and put to good use later in life.
