Year 12’s thoughts on 2020

In reflecting on the year to date it is perhaps difficult to shift our focus from the upset and chaos that COVID-19 has wrought upon the world and find the opportunities to learn and grow that may also be there. Following, I asked some of the Year 12’s to briefly sum up the year and share their hopes for next year;

“This year has been pretty good all things being considered, I think that the students have gotten around each other a lot more which has been really good.”

“Its been a challenging year but now we’re getting to the pointy end and it’s time to knuckle down and make the right decisions going forward. Next year I hope to look back feeling proud of the decisions I have made.”

“This year has been challenging and at times pretty stressful and the unknown has been on my mind. I am feeling a bit nervous about next year and what life will be like after school but coming to SHC was the best decision I ever made because the people here care a lot more than at my last school.”

“This year has definitely been a little strange especially in the first semester. Since then everything seems to have sorted itself out. I have been very fortunate to be in South Australia, it would be very difficult right now if we were Victorians. My hope for next year is to continue working at Minda in my role as a Disability Support worker and maybe go to Uni and study Nursing but I’m not sure yet.”

“The year has been challenging and stressful and overall eventful but in a good way. Next year I hope to start my journey toward achieving my career goal and to be successful in what I do in Graphic Design.”

“Although I wasn’t personally impacted by COVID as much as other students I still found this year difficult but the second semester has been enjoyable. I hope to go to Flinders Uni and study Animal Behaviour and maybe achieve a career working with animals or in conservation.”

In dealing with our current world there are some excellent resources out there such as this useful guide from with practical tips targeted at young people which was shared recently by College Counsellor, Kirstie Salter.

Professor Nick Klomp, Vice Chancellor of CQU has also written a very interesting open letter to Year 12 students commenting on the Government’s proposed changes to the cost of University degrees as well as some wise advice about career choices.

Vocational Education & Training at Sacred Heart College

You’ll be surprised by the range of careers VET opens up – it not only trades.

Well done Jared and Alyssa!

  • Q&A Interview with Year 11 VET Student, Jared Threadgold

    Vocational Education and Training (VET) is a great choice for many students. VET includes classroom based and job related hands-on learning and often a work placement. VET enables students to gain skills and knowledge through a nationally recognised industry developed course whilst at the same time studying for their SACE.

    This term our VET Coordinator, Ms Leanne De Young sat down with Year 11 Student Jared Threadgold who has commenced a Certificate III in Screen and Media – 3D Animation and Game Development at Seaview High School. The course runs every Friday and is delivered by the Academy of Interactive Entertainment.

    The skills Jared will acquire have application across a range of industries which require the use of animation, programming, simulation and I.T. in their work. This Certificate can lead to further education in professional game development, screen and media, games and virtual worlds, Bachelor of Media/Arts (Rising Sun Studios/University of SA) or a Bachelor of Computer Science (Simulation & Serious Games) – the possibilities are limitless!

    Why did you choose to study a VET Course while doing your SACE?
    I have a passion for gaming and the screen media industry – I would love to have a career in this field.

    How did you find out about this course?
    I first heard that students could do VET courses when I was in Year 10 and realised that VET wasn’t just about traditional trades. There are courses in a whole range of emerging industries, including 3D animation and gaming.

    What do you like about your VET course?
    I like that I get to explore and develop my creative side – seeing what other students do inspires me and the trainer has a wealth of knowledge that he freely shares.

    As you are away from school one day a week, how do you manage your schoolwork?
    I email my teachers and check out Google Classroom to see what I have missed out on.  I also go to the LEC when I am struggling with a topic.

    Any words of wisdom for students considering studying a VET Course?
    “Look forward to the future – see the past, the here and the now”.

    If you would like to find out if there is a VET course related to something you are interested in, visit the VET Office in the Marcellin Campus Quad.

  • Two Soft Skills everyone needs – Adaptability and Flexibility

    Traits that could help you to be successful at school, work, and in life.

    School, uni, VET they all teach you hard skills in life and obviously that’s really important.

    Working on developing your soft skills is equally important. It could really pay off in applications and interviews if you can demonstrate that you’ve got those skills (and provide examples to back up your claims).

    What does it mean to be Adaptable and Flexible?

    We’ve put these two skills together as they’re quite similar, but it’s useful to be able to distinguish between the two.

    “Adaptability is a willingness to confront or change your own ideas and preconceptions. Flexibility is more a willingness to “meet others halfway” procedurally.” Forbes

    Being adaptable could help you to react positively to changes in your environment, whilst causing the minimum amount of disruption to you.

    This year you may have experience a shift at short notice, to online learning and studying from home.

    For the majority of students that would have been total change to your normal day-to-day environment, getting to grips with new routines, adjusting to the technology and a different way of learning. Doing all that whilst being isolated from friends, your cohort, and possibly your support network.

    But you did it – that’s a great demonstration of adaptability.

    Whereas flexibility is your ability to quickly adjust to changes in your life and plans without it creating a lot of stress and drama (at least to the outside world).

    For example, pre-lock down you might have been planning a gap year next year, but now you’ve altered your plans will apply for uni next year and do the gap year after you graduate instead.

    Or, perhaps you were planning on applying for a specific course but they’ve adjusted the pre-requisites, so you’ve found an alternative course or pathway that’ll help you reach the same end goal.

    Maybe you’ve decided to study online to save money and enable you to work while you study in response to this year’s pandemic. That’s being flexible, meeting the same end goal but going about achieving it a different way better suited to the situation.


    How flexibility and adaptability could benefit you

    Developing these skills could help you:

    • Be happier in life by taking change in your stride
    • Feel more satisfied in your education and career
    • Be more successful by not letting obstacles stop you
    • Stay positive and on top of things, even when situations don’t go your way
    • Approach life with a “can do” attitude, achieve more and make the most of opportunities
    • Confront challenges confidently
    • Become a better leader and team player
    • Increase your value to employers
    • Exercise emotional intelligence and boost your confidence


    Ways you can become more flexible and adaptable

    Wondering how you can put some work in to developing these skills further?

    Well you could:

    • Say YES to more opportunities
    • Step outside your comfort zone
    • Keep an open mind and encourage others around you to do the same
    • Take every opportunity to learn
    • Set goals and stick to them – milestones may move or change, that’s ok it’s part of process
    • Ask for feedback and really take it on board
    • Don’t give up – problem solve, get creative, make a Plan B
    • Focus on keeping a positive attitude
    • Challenge yourself


    Add these soft skills on your resume

    Since soft skills are important and highly sought after, so it’s important to put them on your resume.

    It’ll show educators and potential employers that you’ll fit in, try your best and accomplish the work necessary to achieve your objectives.

    You could simply state that you’re flexible and adaptable, or use phrases including:

    • Comfortably adjusts to change
    • Stay positive and productive even when faced with challenges or problems
    • Thinks creatively
    • Develops new and innovative solutions
    • Learn quickly and happy to try new methods of working
    • Flexible approach to work
    • Able to prioritise workloads and adapt to changing timelines

    Tip: When you put something on your resume make sure that it’s relevant to the position that you’re applying for, reflects well on you, and most importantly – you can provide examples when you’re asked in an interview.
