I always enjoy reviewing the post-schooling options of our Year 12 school leavers. I like to call them our Year 13s, as I often get phone calls, emails or visits from past students with their stories of success, or questions about future options. As I tell the girls as they prepare to leave Glennie, the doors of the Careers and VET office are always open for our Glennie Old Girls.
It is heartening to see our Glennie graduates undertaking wide and varied pathway options. International Security, Aviation, Engineering, and the Creative Industries all featured in the university study options of last year’s graduates. However, the area of Health continues to be a most popular choice for our girls.
On Thursday, 30 May, The Glennie School will host an information evening focusing on the Health study options at The University of Queensland. We welcome Glennie students and parents along to hear about the options that UQ offer. The evening will consist of two sessions. The first session will cover the Allied Health degrees, while the second session is for those students specifically interested in entering their Medicine and Dentistry course. We are fortunate to have a Third Year Doctor of Medicine Student, Jenyu Shaw, join us to talk about his experience in the program.
More information about the evening is available on the attached flyer. The invitation will also be extended to other schools, and friends of the Glennie community are welcome to come along. The presenter, Mr Sebastian Marx, is very knowledgeable about all of UQ’s programs, so this is an excellent opportunity to learn more about what UQ has to offer without having to make the trip to Brisbane. Please feel free to contact me on 4688 8852 if you have any questions.
