College community partnerships manager Tracey Loughnan said about 500 students and parents attended the July 3 event, where 20 exhibitors provided information about post-school options.
‘There were a range of vocational education and training providers as well as universities,’ she said.
Ms Loughnan said the expo coincided with the open reporting night, allowing parents to look at stalls with their children between interviews with teachers.
‘We have a lot of fairly new residents to Australia so they are not familiar with our post-secondary system ” it was great for them to talk with some experts,’ she said.
‘They just loved that there was something at their fingertips.
‘We are so far away from everything (in central Perth) ” working parents appreciated that it was local.’
Year 11 and 12 students from MSC attended, as well as prospective students from Kinross College, Yanchep and Gingin district high schools.
