Pathways Expo and Twilight Tours
Posted 09 Sep 2020 in
3 September 2020 was a great opportunity for our current parents and prospective parents to tour, ask and hear from experts on Bold Park Secondary Pathways to tertiary education. We had a great turnout with close to 100 people passing through our doors at Maylands to get a glimpse of what a Bold Park Community School education can offer a young adult in Years 7 to 12.
Prospective and current parents were greeted at our gate at 76 Seventh Avenue in Maylands by Lei and Juanita and invited to take a self-guided tour and take in the Pathway Expo. Representatives from Curtin University, ECU, Murdoch, Notre Dame University, Mt Pleasant College, The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award and North Metropolitan TAFE were in attendance to provide students and parents with information on courses, offerings and pathways to start their post-secondary education.
Middle School and College Staff, as well as some alumni, were available to discuss experiences and answer questions that arose as they wandered the grounds of our Maylands Campus.
Paul, Tim, Tricia and Malora gave an informative presentation on the philosophy of the school, how secondary works at Bold Park and the various Pathways, Supplemental Experiences and the unique programs such as the United Nations Global Citizen and Sustainability Program, the Certificate IV in Design, and the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.
The final session for the night was a Q and A panel hosted by Malora and featuring current College Students Tomas, Jordan and Alyssa; Alumni, Sam Hawkes (2019), Julian Dear (2015); and Nicola Burns (2015); Current Parent and Community Engagement Coordinator, Lei Baker and Friend of Bold Park (Past Parent) Tanya Riboni. Each panellist brought their own story of navigation, success and just how a Bold Park Education launched them into their worlds.
