Hennessy Catholic College Yearbook 2022

contributing to their community and making their way in life. Hennessy has a great reputation with local businesses, and I am grateful to the many employers who keep in touch and let me know when they are recruiting. It enables me to forge ongoing relationships and links between school and community and increase the number of young people who live and work locally - a win-win for everyone. Workshops and webinars Throughout the year, many students from Years 7-12 took the opportunity to participate in careers-based webinars, competitions and workshops held by various universities and organisations. The impact of COVID meant that many sessions were held online and, in some ways, this makes it easier for students to take part, although the number of events on offer is sometimes overwhelming! Well done all those who put themselves forward to learn more about various careers including several senior students who learned about a career in medicine from Professor Tara Mackenzie, the Associate Dean of Rural Health in the Riverina. Year 11 - Careers interviews In Term 4, as the ‘new’ Year 12’s begin their final HSC year, I have met one-on one with each student to get an idea of their post school plans. This helps me to understand and meet their needs and interests going into their final year. My role always revolves around working closely with the Year 12 students and giving them the skills and knowledge, they need to make informed career choices, both now and into the future. Hopefully their final year will be happy and productive. As always, it has been my absolute pleasure to support so many wonderful young people as they prepare themselves for life after Hennessy and I wish them all the very best. A big thanks also to my colleagues, for all their support and cooperation in allowing me to meet with students and do the job I enjoy so much. I look forward to 2023.
