Open Nights and Careers Expo

Opportunities for 2025 and beyond

The College held three big events to promote enrolments and the various opportunities for students in 2025 and beyond.

On 6 May, the Year 7 2025 Open Night was held at the Padua Campus. The College Principal, Mr Michael Lee, presented to prospective students and families, before ߲ݴý students took our guests on tours of the campus. The event also included a special 'Teach at ߲ݴý' section of stalls for those interested in working at ߲ݴý.

On 10 May, more than 500 Year 6 students from Canberra and NSW spent a day at the Padua Campus for Try ߲ݴý Day. This event gave our visitors the opportunity to experience a day of high school and to see what classes at ߲ݴý are like.

On 15 May, the St Peter’s Campus hosted the Year 11 2025 Open Night and Careers Expo. Students were able to access a range of stalls where they could talk with universities, CIT, employment groups, apprenticeships centres, trades, and industry representatives in order to understand their options and opportunities in the future. With those opportunities in mind, Year 10 students were also able to visit curriculum stalls to chat about courses and to plan out their senior studies for the next two years. The Careers Expo is one of the most valuable events for our senior students in the planning of their pathways after Year 12. 

The College thanks all the staff and students who organised and ran these three big events, as well as the external organisations who contributed. The feedback from visitors was extremely positive.

For students who wish to enrol in Year 7 or Year 11 at ߲ݴý, please be aware that applications are due on the following dates:

  • Year 7, 2025: Friday 31 May at 5pm
  • Year 11, 2025: Friday 5 July at 5pm (new students only)
