Future Pathways for Senior Students
On Tuesday our Seniors spent the day listening to Darren Pareira from Success Integrated (http://www.successintegrated.com/) as he shared with them skills that we will help them prepare and plan their future pathways.
The Year 10 students spent half the day looking at “Shaping their Destiny” then in the afternoon they investigated their own characteristics looking at online strategies to discover pathways for future careers that will lead to success.
The Year 10 outcomes for this seminar were
- to remove student confusion and uncertainty about their future by aligning their passions, talents and ideals to a pathway best suited to them;
- to create a year level of students who are motivated to perform well at school because they have connected to a compelling future;
- to set written and specific goals to give students focus and direction at school and beyond; and
- to create a step-by-step plan of action, designed by the students, which will be the blueprint for their academic and career success.
On Wednesday, this was followed up with a trip to Sunshine Coast University and they were able to spend the day discovering what the university offers.
The Year 11 and 12’s looked at “Study Skills for Success” on Tuesday.
The desired outcomes for this session was to give students the motivation, organisational systems, study habits and resilience required to achieve academic excellence and give them the edge by developing the critical habits of mind necessary for academic success.
After school, Darren did a separate session with staff investigating key strategies to raise academic achievement.
