Morrisby Career Interviews scheduled for August in Term 3

Year 9 Students and Parents

The second stage of the Morrisby Program will occur in early August, in Term 3. Lauren from the CEAV has pencilled in the following dates for the Morrisby interviews to be scheduled both on site and remotely at Melbourne High School:

#  Monday the 7/8/23 through to Friday the 11/8/23

This mainly affects students in Years 9G, 9H, 9J, 9K and 9L and appointment times will be made once Lauren has identified the number of available Morrisby Consultants there are for our school. This is likely to happen on Thursday the 3rd of August. Students are reminded to check their emails regularly in early August to ensure they know when their appointment is scheduled.

The interview schedule will be 8 interview slots per day with back-to-back sessions in the afternoon.

The number of consultants operating at each time slot could range from between 4-6 per time slot.

All Students and Parents

On the 12th of July, the Careers Office and the MHSOBA Inc. hosted the 2023 Annual Careers Night Event at our school. We estimated that there was close to 500 in attendance which was a very high number of attendees. On behalf of the Careers Office and the Principal, Dr Tony Mordini, I would like to thank the following people for their massive assistance on the night:

# Jo Malley of the MHSOBA (Co-organiser of the night),

# Siany Sanusi (Canteen Manager with her amazing and healthy foods) and her crew,

# Professor Shanton Chang (Keynote Speaker from The University of Melbourne),

# All of our Year 10 Volunteers who assisted us with this Community Service Event,

# All of the Tertiary Representatives from the various universities both locally and interstate,

# Samantha from Education USA,

# All of the Professional Occupational Speakers who gave-up their valuable time and evening to be with us at The Castle. As well as also spending their time and effort to prepare for their sessions, and

# The following staff members for their enormous assistance, Rob Sette, Brendan Litan, Luc Bohn, Kelli Simpson and the IT Department.

Finally, could I again emphasise why this event is so important to students and their parents every year at our school. The importance of this event was that it offered every student and their parent the opportunity to explore career courses and/or occupations, which could very well translate to their desired destinations when they exit Melbourne High. It was an opportunity to gain further knowledge in areas such as Medicine, Health Sciences, Business, Law, IT and Engineering. This event also had other elements this year to it such as the inclusion of the Centre for Higher Education Studies (CHES) Building.
