S

t Mary’s College student Christopher Godfrey is not afraid of a challenge. The Grade 9 student said he was hoping for a future career in medicine and wanted to look at options available during the University of Southern Queensland’s (USQ) Careers Day for Grade 8 and 9 students yesterday. “I like a challenge and getting into a career in medicine definitely counts as one so I’m interested in checking out the nursing program at USQ,” he said. “Plus I’d like the chance to help other people. “The Careers Day has been a

really good and informative day— I also went last year and found it very interesting.” The event attracted about 170 students from all around the Darling Downs, as far out as Warwick, Roma and Wandoan. Schools Engagement Officer (Marketing and Student Attraction) Hannah Mathewson said the day was both eventful and educational. “Students have learnt all about what careers are available in the areas of law, business, nursing, engineering and even the Defence Force, among others,” Miss Mathewson said. “For many students, especially those who live out west, this will be their first time experiencing higher education so we aim to give them

a taste of what university life is like and what options are available when they finish school. “We try to make sure all the sessions throughout the day are interactive and we have USQ staff and students available to talk to about university life and what courses are available.” Schools attending included: • Crow’s Nest State School • Dalby State High School • Inglewood State School • Kingaroy State High School • Oakey State High School • Pittsworth State High School • Roma State College • St George State High School • St Mary’s College • Wandoan State School • Warwick State High School
