A reminder that parents of students in Years 9 and 10 are warmly invited to hear a presentation about supporting your child through navigating their career education journey.

Chris Mesecke from Career Designs SA will take you through topics like the changing labour market, how to identify interests and skills, online career resources, SACE, VET, the value of Work Experience, apprenticeships and traineeships and much more! If you haven’t already RSVP’d please email me this week on

If numbers exceed the Flynn Theatre capacity we will relocate to the Kranvitter Hall.

Bond University Scholarships Presentation

Scholarships are a great way to assist your child in paying for their university studies. I sometimes anecdotally hear that some universities have to return the funds as they don’t always get enough applicants! There is a scholarships button on Career Tools dedicated to scholarships on the home page!

Over the past 2 years we have had 3 students get full academic scholarships to Bond University (please note, medicine is not open to scholarships) All it takes is a bit of time and effort!

Scott Williamson from Bond University invites you and your parents / guardians to a Scholarship Workshop in Adelaide, on June 7.

You will be able to learn more about the range of scholarships available, addressing eligibility criteria, positioning yourself as the strongest candidate for a potential scholarship, and more.

Date: Wednesday, June 7
Time: 5:30 - 6:30pm
Location: The Chapel, Prince Alfred College

There is no cost to attend, but registration is required.

To RSVP, please email Scott directly on with your full-name and any names of family attending with you.
