Student Pathways is a program which provides guidance and advice for the senior students of Kinross Wolaroi School; it covers subject selection for Year 11, careers advice and guidance on post-HSC entrance to university.
The Year 10 Careers Exploration program provides our students with the opportunity to discuss and research careers which may be of interest to them. Students' aptitude, interests and temperament are assessed, and each student receives an individualised summary of the results; these are then discussed in class prior to subject selection for Year 11.
The Parents and Friends Careers Forum provides students in Years 10, 11 and 12 with the opportunity to meet first hand with members of the community across a range of occupations and trades. Students are able to ask questions about career paths and organise Work Experience.
All students in Year 11 are encouraged to participate in a Work Experience program. This is formally offered at the end ofTerm 1 but students are able to take advantage of the program at any time throughout Years 10, 11 or 12.
All students in Year 12 are encouraged to have a one-on-one interview with the Careers Advisor in Term 1 of the HSC year. Parents are also welcome to attend this meeting should they choose to. This meeting provides the opportunity to discuss post-school options and is designed to give students goals and a direction for the HSC year and beyond. Universities, scholarships, accommodation options and various degrees can all be explored.
Students attend an information session at Charles Sturt University in Bathurst in Term 2 . Every university in NSW has representatives at this information session for students to approach and make more detailed inquiries as to what the university can provide for them. Also present are representatives from private colleges, TAFE and various employer groups.
Being a part of Kinross Wolaroi School does not stop when your son or daughter leaves school. We are active in maintaining links with ex-students and reunions are a very popular way for former students to stay in touch with each other and the School.
