THE HON DR SHARMAN STONE MP Federal Member for Murray

School Leavers Guide now available

As school finishes for year 12s across Murray, Dr Sharman Stone, Federal Member for Murray, has released a new School Leavers Guide with lots of helpful information.

Dr Sharman Stone said this is an exciting and challenging time for final year students as they start exams and get ready for the next stage of further education, training or employment.

“I encourage our students to talk to their parents, teachers, career advisers and people in the field they want to pursue, to find out as much as they can about the right next step after school.

“Students leaving secondary schooling can struggle to find the information they need, or be overwhelmed with so many great choices and options.

“Many will have to move away from home to study, train or take up a job.

“This guide has information about career development, further education and training options, financial advice for young people, as well as many useful contacts for more detailed information,” Sharman Stone said.

“I wish our final year students all the best with their coming exams. I am sure all the hard work will pay off. As well, if our young people leave the area in the next stages of their life, let’s hope they return one day to be our next generation of business people, farmers, tradesmen and women and professionals.”

“An electronic version of the School Leavers Guide has been sent to each of the year 12 Coordinators to pass along to their students. The guide can also be downloaded from my website www.sharmanstone.com or picked up from my office at 426 Wyndham Street,” Sharman Stone said.

More information for students is also available at www.year12whatnext.gov.au .
