GRADE 10-12 Students from Atherton State High School (ASHS) and Mareeba State High School (MSHS) attended the ASHS Careers Expo last week to get insight on the workforce. 

The Expo was held mainly for students in Grade 10 at ASHS, so they can find their prerequisites before picking their subjects for their senior years next term.

Bruce Dane, Head of Senior School Coordinator of the Expo, said that it has benefited the students greatly when choosing a career pathway.

“The purpose is so that next term year 10 students will get a taste of the local careers around and help them pick their subjects,” he said. 

“They were given tips about career pathways and people like the emergency service as well as university and TAFE reps were there to give guidance to students wanting to continue to study. 

“A wide range of organisations attended and it was an amazing opportunity for Grade 10’s to receive that face to face guidance. 

Mr Dane said that after the morning's events, he asked students how much they benefitted, to which they responded positively.
