Alumni Mentors inspire at our Careers Morning
We welcomed back 15 alumni from different industries at our Years 10-12 Careers Morning. Students were able to select which industries were of interest to them and had the opportunity to hear from two different speakers. Our Alumni shared their career journeys so far and offered valuable insights in the variety of options available to graduates.
Students then completed an online reflection and quiz about the types of careers that would be best suited to them. Finally, the Senior School came together to hear from Marc Light about his career journey as well as the importance of being active members of our Alumni Association, KDS Connect.
Nicki Goodrich, Pathways Advisor concluded the morning by encouraging students to take the next steps towards making decisions in their career pathways. She encouraged every student to participate in Open Days at tertiary institutions and to shadow a person in a career that seems appealing to them to gain insights into different opportunities available. Nicki talked about the importance of continuing to build their communication and collaboration skills through opportunities presented to them as King David students.
We thank the Alumni Mentors for “giving back” to our current students and look forward to welcoming more alumni back to KDS in the future to share their experiences.
