Planning for this year’s Fair is going well. With almost 50 professions and
organisations having made arrangements to attend and more still in the
pipeline, it looks like being a very interesting and informative evening.
Talks are still being formalised, but we expect there to be presentations or
more informal talks from 12 professions during the evening.
The Fair will, we hope, allow students to investigate and discover more about
the professions in which they are interested, as well as opening their minds to
new possibilities. The employment world is changing very quickly, with new
and exciting fields opening up all the time, so we hope students will not
become fixated at this stage on one career to the exclusion of everything else.
They need to keep open minds and the Fair offers an enjoyable and fairly
painless way of researching.
We invite all students from Years 8 – 13 and their parents. We regret that
space does not allow Year 7 to attend, but the next Fair will take place in 2012
to inform Year 9 option choices at that stage.
We look forward to seeing you on the evening. If you have not already done
so, please put the date in your diary.
