Careers Day 2019
Our sixth annual Careers Day, for all students in Classes 7-12, on Wednesday 20th March was a great success. Mr David Coulthard, ex-Formula One driver, gave a very uplifting and inspirational keynote speech to our students and staff as well as to the 26 guest speakers who conducted mini-seminars on varying fields of work and expertise. New ideas for careers came with mini seminars on military/defence law, technology, start-ups, conservation, cancer biology, ocean and environmental science, real estate, film and television production, philanthropy, events management and careers in both the military and in sports.
Our guest speakers were very impressed with our students, with one writing "The students were all extremely engaged and I had some of the best questions from some real young minds which blew me away. Fantastic to see ISM instilling in young kids such a great inquisitive attitude."
Congratulations to all our Student Chaperones who ensured the smooth running of the event – and many thanks to our wonderful guest speakers for sharing their experiences with us. We thank Mrs Lindsay Mackenzie-Wright, the School Council and the Careers Day Committee for their organisation of this highlight of the school calendar.
