Claire Pech – Careers Advisor

The last week of Year 12 is always a mixture of joy as students leave and go out into the big world, and sadness as they depart their second home. Some students have been at Emanuel School since Kornmehl. For nearly all students, it’s a mixture of emotions. We see it each year and we wish them all the best of luck as they go on to exciting life choices. This Year Group, in particular, have been a great, fun group, with a wide variety of interesting fields. I really enjoy finding out what our graduates go on to do. I am sure that in the Class of 2022 we will see future designers, lawyers, artists, singers, actors, doctors, engineers, scientists, biomedical scientists, humanitarians, politicians, perhaps a marine biologist and a host of teachers, nurses, occupational therapists, and allied health professionals, who will go on to work in the community.

I wish them all well and I have enjoyed being part of their decision-making throughout the last few years!





Here is the timeline for Year 12 for the remainder of 2022:
