Old Girl Insights for School Leavers
This morning our Class of 2016 returned to School for St Catherine’s and St Catherine’s Old Girls’ Association’s (SCOGA) inaugural School Leavers’ Panel.
Four past students from 2013 to 2015 were invited to participate in the panel discussion and provided our most recent School leavers with advice on life after school. The panellists were Zara Mellios (’13), Allie Veall (’13), Jacquelin Cantarella (’15) and Isabelle Ferrali (’15) and Tess Price (’14) moderated the discussion.
The areas covered during the discussion included the panellists’ journeys from School to tertiary placement, adjusting to their chosen pathways and important advice for this transition. They also provided information based on their chosen tertiary pathway – university, college and vocational studies.
It was a wonderful morning for all of our Old Girls, providing further support to our School leavers and continuing to cultivate ongoing networks between our alumnae.
