Presenters from Year13, Australia’s largest digital platform for young Australians bringing The Truth Project to students from years 9-12 visited the school to talk to student about career planning.
Running as a pilot program in 2018, Bomaderry High School was selected as one of ten schools in New South Wales to be involved in The Truth Project.
The program was developed to enhance student’s knowledge about career pathways and encourage a more positive post-school journey.
Student’s participated in goal setting activities and learnt about the importance of transferable skills.
Saxon Phipps, founder of Year13 spoke to students about his own career journey and shared some valuable advice on managing the stress of the HSC and choosing a post school pathway.
Holly Pastor, careers adviser at Bomaderry High said the presentation made an impact on students.
“The Truth Project compliments the revamped careers education program at Bomaderry High School and encourages students to prepare for life after school,” she said.
“It’s not always easy for students to know what they want to do after leaving school, and the more opportunities we can give them to speak to people about their options, the better prepared they will be.”
Ms Pastor said Bomaderry High School has built some valuable partnerships with business and community organisations in 2018 and hopes to further these connection in the future.
