The objectives of the week are to encourage students to explore and understand what preparations and skills are needed to be successful in specific careers. It will give them the necessary tools that will enable them to make their choices wisely.

Pertaining particularly to Second Form students, Minister Carty advised that they soon would be making overseas examination choices and it is important to understand that such decisions would impact their future.
During the week a number of topics will be presented. These include “Imagine your Future” by Charlene Bowry , “Building Aspiration” by Hon. Curtis Martin, “Professionalism” by Kaye Bass, and “Choices” by Yasmine Davis.
The week culminates with a career fair on Friday May 25 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.at the school. It is hoped that by the end of career week all Second Form students will be equipped with essential information that will enable them to select the appropriate combination of subjects for their chosen career.
