Jacqueline, Izzy, Camryn and Izzy identified that there is a lot of anxiety surrounding future career plans and subject choices that peaks in year 10. They decided that for their project they would like to contribute to reducing these levels of anxiety. After speaking to the careers coordinator, evaluating the online resources and chatting to peers, they noticed that there was a lot of resources already, however not many of the students knew about them. This triggered them to organise an end-of-year presentation for the year 9’s. In this presentation they spoke about the resources available and their own experiences surrounding the process with the aim to help alleviate some anxiety for this year level in the upcoming year. After the presentation, they received positive feedback from both the students and teachers!
