The School Etiquette Class I taught this week was to 130 Year 10 girls at Mount St Joseph. The main subject they wanted was Job Interview Skills. This topic covers all aspects of going for a job interview such as:
- Why get a part time job when still at school
- Types of jobs to look for
- Where to look
- How to prepare for the interview
- Having perfect manners in the interview
- The interview
- Practicing typical interview questions
- The thank you at the end of the interview
The girls were extremely enthusiastic about my presentation and participated really well in answering the questions I put to them. It was a pleasure to teach such a polite, enthusiastic group.
I was introduced by one of the girls and at the end of the presentation I was thanked by another girl ad give a gift. It is small details such as this that makes a school stand out from the crowd.
I was very impressed by the lovely warm and caring atmosphere that exists at the school. A couple of examples are: they had the Aboriginal flag as well as the Australian flag flying. I was told they support a school in Peru and raise money for this school Next week they are having a “market day” and all proceeds go to this school.
It is no wonder the girs were so lovely when they are lucky enough to be going to such a wonderful school.
