The Directions team participated again this year in Narrogin’s annual Aspirations Day. The event theme for 2018 was ‘Because of Her, We Can’.
Brenda DeAtta and Lydia Ugle attended the event with Brenda discussing options and pathways for Aboriginal students, talking about her own career story.
The key activity for the day was in the form of ‘speed careering’ with each group of students visiting each information booth for 15min sessions. This program was designed to increase student’s awareness of possible career paths through a series of mini presentations from various business guests.
Areas also covered included mental health and well-being, as well as being emotionally/physically fit for whatever job the student chooses and students were given information on the various support agencies available to them.
The event was held at the John Higgins Centre (part of the Narrogin Leisure Complex).
