More than 1200 Year 6 students are planning to converge on Griffith University’s Logan Campus this week for the Launch into Life at Logan careers event.
The students from 12 Logan and 6 Inala primary schools, as well as registered parents and supervising staff, will take part in three days of activities designed to help the students consider a career, and learn about life at university.
Head of Logan Campus, Professor Lesley Chenoweth, said it is never too soon for children to start thinking about these important life choices.
“For many young students, especially those who come from families where no one has been to university before, it is the first time they realise some of the career opportunities they have available to them,” Professor Chenoweth said.
“It is our delight and privilege to be able to introduce these children to a world of learning and career options.”
The Launch into Life at Logan careers event is being held on Tuesday 25, Wednesday 26 & Thursday 27 November from 9.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m.
Griffith students will lead small groups of the visiting children through their day’s program, and separate sessions will also be provided for participating parents/caregivers.
Launch into Life at Logan is a Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP) initiative at Griffith University.
