Year 7 and 8 students at St Mary’s Catholic College began the important task of planning their futures with a special careers day at the school on Tuesday.
Should I become a farmer? A firefighter? Maybe a nurse or a reporter …
A roster of South Burnett residents shared their experiences in various fields with about 100 students.
Vanessa Madge, from the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services, spoke about her job while St Mary’s Adopt-a-Cop Senior Constable Todd Armstrong talked about his role as a general policing officer.
Others who volunteered their time to share their stories included Todd Fieldler (plumbing), Suzanne Mungall (speech pathology), Gayle Lamping (medical science) and Damien Martoo (media).
There were also talks about medicine, pharmacy, agronomy and banking.
The students, who were divided into two groups, heard from a total of 16 professionals across the all-day program, and also had plenty of opportunities to ask questions.
