ICHM SCHOOL VISIT – THURSDAY 18 MARCH

The world renowned Tessa Rochfort from International College of Hotel Management located at Regency Park, will be visiting the College on Thursday 18 March to talk with Year 12 Business Innovation students. If your son or daughter would like to learn more about ICHM and be prepared to complete their 2022 scholarships please email rose.coorey@smc.sa.edu.au who can then arrange for them to join the presentation.

We are very excited to have Class of 2020 old scholar Jennifer Roberts completing the Bachelor of Business: Hospitality Management on the $15000 scholarship she won last year.

87% of graduates each year find employment and many opportunities to develop skills at an internationally recognised level. There are 1500 hours of Work Experience embedded in the course and much of this is paid. The career paths for these graduates is wide and varied: General Management & Administration Human Resource Management Marketing & Sales Event Management Food & Beverage Management Accounts & Finance Room Divisions & Front Office Executive Roles in Other Industries

Whilst it is a private institution, students can take out the VET Help Loan to cover the cost of Tuition.

We encourage families to check out ICHM by clicking here. To register for their Discovery Days held on Friday 28 May or Friday 27 August click here.

Unfortunately these dates are a normal school day and students will need approval from their parents and the College and will need to make their own travel arrangements.

YEAR 12

A pastoral class competition was held to encourage the completion of the Career Survey. The Career Survey responses give us additional background information that will help us better support our Year 12 students on their journey beyond Year 12. The level of competitiveness between the classes for the prize baskets is always very entertaining to see.

Congratulations to the prize winners:
1st: 12PC-02, Mr Smith
2nd: 12PC-04, Mr Emerson
3rd: 12PC-06, Ms Moros

Some students have not yet submitted their responses and we ask that parents/caregivers encourage them to follow the link in their emails so that we can provide more targeted help.
