Twenty adults across a range of professions attended the event at Prendiville Catholic College on June 23 to speak to groups of Year 11 students.

Careers and VET co-ordinator Jason Todd said the event gave all 180 students an opportunity to get information from people already working in jobs they might be interested in, such as medicine, multimedia, graphic design, law, electrical, education, performing arts, environmental science, physiotherapy and chiropractics.

After the students and guests had talked over breakfast, Australian Defence Force representatives Lieutenant Shaun Moore and Petty Officer Andrew Leeson also spoke about their roles in the navy.

Lt Moore said going out to sea on his first ship had been a �culture shock� and working in submarines took a �certain type of person�, but he still enjoyed his nine years of service.

�There are lots of travel opportunities in the navy � I�ve been to at least 20 countries in my time,� he said.
