JSS3 CAREER WORKSHOP
The annual JSS3 Career Workshop has just been concluded. This is in preparation for subject selections when the students get into senior secondary school. Students will have to decide on elective subjects which they will be offering. It is at this point in their academic life that they decide the career tracks they wish to pursue. They are required to select from a range of subjects between the arts and sciences.
The school managements invites various professionals every year to talk to the students about their professions to enable them make more informed career path decisions.
