⭐️ UNSW Year 10 Gateway Program ⭐️ Last week, a group of our Year 10 students were given a taste of University life, attending the University of NSW Year 10 Gateway Program at their Kensington Campus. Students explored their Values in Action and used those values to create an 'Elevator Pitch' about themselves and their interests. They participated in a NIDA workshop led by a professional actor, where they learnt the techniques required in public speaking and how to present themselves with confidence. At the end of this workshop students used those skills to deliver their newly created elevator pitch to the class. The afternoon was spent at a UNSW Alumni Networking session where the students were able to learn more about degrees, careers, passions and pathways through conversations with UNSW Alumni and Ambassadors from every faculty. What a fantastic opportunity for our students to get their first glimpse at University.
