Collegians’ Careers Evening
Tuesday 20 March 2018, Memorial Hall, commencing at 7.30pm

With generous support from old scholars, parents and friends of the School, the Careers Evening is being held again this year. The evening is aimed at boys in Year 10 and 11, and all Year 10 students are expected to attend as the evening is an integral part of their Personal Learning Plan. Year 12 boys are most welcome and would benefit from speaking to practitioners about their careers. More details will be provided closer to the date, but in the meantime, please save the date.

UMAT 2018

The Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admission Test (UMAT) is used by many tertiary institutions as a part of their undergraduate selection processes for medicine, dentistry and other allied health courses. In a change to previous years, registrations for students to sit the UMAT can be made now. Registrations are required by 5.00pm on 1 June 2018 and must be done online.

Applications for special testing conditions must be made by 16 June with the test being held on 25 July 2018. The UMAT is available to any candidate whose educational level at the time of sitting the test is their final year of secondary schooling or higher. Candidates found to have sat the UMAT in Year 11 will have their results cancelled and be permanently banned form sitting the UMAT.

Auction Idol

Auction Idol is a competition run by the Society of Auctioneers and Appraisers in South Australia. Participants are instructed in auctioneering principles and the practical aspects of conducting an auction will be taught by the mentor from the society. The competition provides an insight into the profession and develops a number of related skills such as public speaking and thinking on your feet. Year 10, 11 or 12 boys interested in real estate careers or who want to improve their public speaking and communication skills would benefit from participating in the competition. The students will be coached by some of the leading auctioneers and real-estate identities in Adelaide and it is not a long-term or time-consuming commitment.
