Two Year 12 students have shared their aspirations for the future.
Hayden Laube from St Mark’s College has dreams of becoming a scientist.
His preferred place of study is Adelaide University, which he described as “the most appealing” of all the universities.
He is looking at studying physics but also has an interest in maths and nutrition.
“I have applied at Adelaide University for a few science courses,” he said.
He said when he begins university he will live at St Anne’s Residential College.
However, he would like to take a gap year first when he will start looking for a job.
“I might look at an apprenticeship if one comes up,” he said.
He has enjoyed Year 12 but looks forward to the challenges of the future.
“It will be pretty sad to leave the family,” he said.
“I am going to miss my friends.
“But a lot are going to university, so I will still see them.”
Another St Mark’s College student, Hannah Young is hoping to study a double degree in special and primary education at Flinders University.
She will start next year.
Her motivation for studying the course has come from working as a volunteer for Riding for Disabled.
“I love working with children.
“It kind of inspired me.”
And Hannah has no plans to live in the city when she finishes her degree.
“I would like tolive in a rural area definitely,” she said.
“I just love being in the country.
She said country areas need help with special needs children.
“There is not enough support for them.
Instead of staying at a residential college, Hannah plans to live with two other Port Pirie girls near the university.
Moving away is going to be a big step for Hannah but she believes she will learn to be independent “very quick”.
“I’m really nervous, I’m not a city person,” she said.
“I’m going to miss the country.
“I’m country born and bred.”
