‘Younger’ old boys provide a future focus
Published on: 20 June 2019
Our Year 12 students were joined by a number of younger old boys recently over a series of Future Focus breakfasts.
The event, organised collaboratively by the School’s Old Boys’ Association (OBA) and Careers Office, offered the Year 12s an opportunity to hear about future pathways, challenges and opportunities beyond school.
A panel of old boys, selected on the basis of their diverse backgrounds and broad experiences since leaving Christ Church, were interviewed about choices they have made since leaving school and what they have learnt from their journey, reflecting on factors that have influenced their decisions including mentors, qualifications, skill development, motivation, travel and support.
“For our Year 12s this event provides reassurance and encouragement as the boys consider the choices ahead of them,” explains Career Counsellor, Ms Jody Clarke
“It also inspires students to identify their own strengths and interests and look at opportunities which they may have not yet considered.”
This valuable event also provides an opportunity for our alumni to contribute meaningfully to the School and further cement the positive relationship between the School and Old Boys’ Association.
