Youth and parents invited to career day

2017-10-12 06:00

A career expo with the theme “Improve your future” will be hosted in Uitenhage at John Walton Senior Secondary School.

This will be the second consecutive year that a career expo will be held at John Walton Senior Secondary School.

“We want to ignite passion and dreams in our youth,” said Leigh Damons from John Walton Senior Secondary School.

“They should not just accept the current economic situation and depend on a government grant, but should broaden their know-ledge as to what is available out there.”

Apart from learners, parents, aunts, uncles and even grandparents are encouraged to come along with their youngsters to find out more about career opportunities.

Grade 9 learners are invited to attend as well. In coming months they will have to select the subjects they want to pursue from next year until they write their final matric exams.

While making the call of subject choice is an exciting exercise for some, others struggle with the commitment, especially when they are not yet sure what they want to study after school.

The career expo will be held tomorrow from 09:00-14:00 at the school’s premises.
