The annual careers evening is always accompanied by mixed emotions. Initially, it can be quite overwhelming to walk through the careers expo and listen to the post-school experiences of St Mary’s alumni. I think I can safely say that the uncertainty I’m feeling about my plans for when I leave school is shared by many of my peers.
Despite the nervous undertone of the evening, many of us left The Edge more excited about our futures than when we arrived. It’s not necessarily that one of the talks we heard helped us to pinpoint exactly what we want to study after school but more that the vast array of experiences shared by St Mary’s Old Girls displayed the endless possibilities that are waiting for us. Although the thought of a world outside St Mary’s is somewhat frightening, it’s simultaneously comforting to know that one day we, too, will become Old Girls and begin to make our marks on the world.
