Bray Park State High School (BPSHS) will be helping Year 10 students shape their future at its 2022 Careers Day on Friday.

The day event will be in three starting with an expo with more than 100 exhibitors from businesses to training organisations, government associations and universities.

Students will then take part in a range of activities to ‘get to know’ careers before trying some in the afternoon. These include a rocket challenge, fixing a car and hairdressing.

BPSHS has also provided a flipbook for parents and students with more than 100 pages of information from providers and companies.

Meet and connect

Following the Careers Day, the Year 10s will be do exercises to help them make subject decisions for SET planning as they move into senior years.

“Our 2022 Careers Day will give our students a Braymazing opportunity to meet and connect with over 100 organisations including Universities, companies, training providers etc,” BPSHS Principal Peter Turner.

“The day will highlight the great partnerships the school has developed with our community to give our students access to great post school pathways.”

Careers Day 2022 was the brainchild of the Industry and Vocational Training officer at Bray Park SHS and has been organised over the last seven months.

Showcase

The aim is to showcase and connect students with opportunities to get to know members of the community and hear what they do and have done.

This will include hospitality and tourism ambassadors, former AFL greats, NRL footballers, NBL female champions, former Bray Park SHS students, parents who enjoy giving back and community business owners sharing their knowledge and experiences.

Not only will students hear about pathways they will also get to try different careers through skill sets such as nappy challenges, building a village, flying a drone, cooking with Indigenous chef Chris Jordan from Three Little Birds, science experiments on strawberries and making a marshmallow and spaghetti house.
