Frequently Asked Questions
Q - I am a year 10 student and not sure if I should go to the Sunshine Coast Daily Careers Expo this year or wait until grade 11 or 12?
A - Many grade 10 students attend the event and do so each senior year until they graduate from high school. It is very beneficial in grade 10 to get information about the different career pathways and studies on offer. If you have to choose your subjects in years 11 and 12, it is better to know which ones to choose at the end of year 10 then find out in grade 12 that you have selected the wrong subject for the career and study that you wish to pursue!
