Check out our Careers Website!
Students can access the website, maximising resources, and other important Career information. Our school community can also access this site, enabling parents to have conversations with their children about Careers and Pathways. This is a great tool which provides students with careers events, VCE & VCAL information, post school options, TAFE and countless other resources to support their transition from school to employment or further education.

Careers Guest Speaker
Wednesday kicked off our first Careers Guest Speaker for 2020 and our Years 10,11 and 12 students loved it!
Danny Anderson- Emergency Management Coordinator from Ambulance Victoria came to speak to the students about careers and pathways into the various opportunities in the Ambulance Service. Danny also spoke about his journey which started at the former Moe High School. Danny’s advice to students was ‘take every opportunity you are given’ and ‘be passionate about what you do’. Great advice for our student body given the incredible career Danny has had so far. Did you know that Danny coordinated the recent evacuations from the East Gippsland fires while working collectively with the Australian Defence Force and other emergency services? Ask your child about the amazing photos and stories he shared.
Danny will be coming back to speak with individual students about paramedicine later in the year.
Thank you, Danny, for sharing your journey with the students.
Our next Careers Guest Speaker is the Australian Defence Force on Wednesday 4th March @2pm.
Year 10 Work Experience
Work Experience for Semester 1 group is from 11th May – 15th May. Students in the following classes, 10HUM11, 10HUM51, & 10HUM61 will participate. The remaining classes will undertake work experience in Semester 2. It is an expectation that all Year 10 students participate in this program. Information has been sent home via Compass to parents/guardians. Students have received this information and discussed the process during class time. Students are required to source their own work experience placement. Doing this provides students with a great opportunity to develop their communication skills, initiative and ‘real world’ experiences. Please see attached documents and encourage your child to be working on finding a work experience placement.
