- Student Life
At Genazzano, each individual student is encouraged to be aspirational in her career goals. Participation in lifelong learning that supports these career goals is facilitated via a range of programs, from Years 7-12. The Career Development Program allows students to discover their potential, explore their career interests and link their learning to future success in life.
It is based on five principles:
Change is constant – embrace it
Learning is ongoing
Focus on the journey
Know yourself, believe in yourself and follow your heart
Access your allies.
