“We feel at Kingsgrove High School that it is never too early to commence conversations with our young people, our students, have them contextualise their learning, exploring careers and pathways available, connecting the skills they are building now, to outcomes for tomorrow,” Ms Theodoris said.

In her speech, the Principal of KHS, Olga Sofo, said students gained valuable knowledge and understanding through their participation in the expo.

“The expo is a stepping stone towards a brighter future,” Ms Sofo told students.

“It is an occasion to dream big, to expand your horizons, and to ignite the fire within you. Remember that success is not merely a product of talent, but also of exploration, perseverance, and the ability to make informed choices.”
