Careers Update

4 March 2016

A reminder that the Glennie Careers and VET website now has a ‘button’ on the Portal so that you can reach it directly. This is a ‘one stop shop’ for all questions related to Careers and VET and you are encouraged to browse it. Girls have been asked to use the website in the first instance. If they can’t find what they want they should contact Mrs Bird or Mrs Paul.

Group messages will be posted to the site regarding activities and important information rather than using email so it’s important that girls look at the website on a regular basis. There are links to many outside sites such as QCAA, QTAC, universities, TAFE, private RTOs, the Good University Guide, scholarships and many others. There is also a calendar of events covering Glennie, tertiary institutions, TAFE and scholarship dates etc.  You can choose to be sent this information by registering your email address through the website.  

MHS Careers newsletter 
Glennie subscribes to the MHS Careers newsletter which is full of careers information. If you wish to read this newsletter, please email MHS on, tell them that you are a Glennie parent/student and ask for the password.

As from Term 2 there will be a new Careers Advisor at Glennie. I have worked at Glennie for 17 years and have been in this role for eight years. I’m now going to pursue a life away from Glennie. As another cohort of Glennie Year 12 girls begin an exciting stage of their lives I will be doing the same – only at the other end of the working cycle!  

I will miss the wonderful girls; they have been a pleasure to work with and I am looking forward to the future.  I will still, of course, be available until the end of term.

Mrs Alison Bird
Careers Co-ordinator
