The Old Scholars helped the school with the recent Careers Expo held in May ’23. Local employers such as INCAT were in attendance and reported a good response from students.

This is a way to help students and local businesses at the same time. It also links in with the mentoring as mentioned above.

If you are an employer, or know of an employer who would like to participate in the next Careers Expo at Hobart City or Elizabeth College, please contact
