Dear Parents and Students,

Please also note that we also have several HE meetings related to applying to various countries throughout Years 12 and 13 (please see the online school calendar for details), which we hope are helpful in supporting students’ research and decision-making. Additionally, we have many university guestsvisiting to explain about higher education in their countries and their universities in more detail. These are announced through posters, the direct emails to students and through morning tutor time. Please ask your daughter/son about these meetings if you want further details.
As always, please feel free to contact the Careers Room Office (students can come by during break times and families can request appointments by email or via the student). You are also welcome to email or phone us if you have any questions or concerns regarding your daughter’s/son’s decisions related to her/his potential careers and higher education pathways.
