To All Senior Students At Girls' College

Girls' College would like to notify all Girls' College students, particularly senior students, of two upcoming events that you should be interested in.

Both take place this Saturday 6 February, but don't worry they don't overlap too much, so you can attend both if you wish or need to.

  • The first event is a careers expo, the Macpherson Careers Expo at Old Miltonians Club in 3rd Street Bulawayo this Saturday 6 February.  All Girls' College students have exclusive access to this event between 9:00am and 10:00am.  This expo runs until 4:00pm.
  • The second event is the EducationUK Expo run by the British Council and will take this Saturday 6 February at the Holiday Inn from 2:00pm to 6:30pm.

There will be a lot of valuable advice on offer, so Girls' College strongly recommends these events to our valued students.

Contact either the school Front Office or Mr Aldridge for further information.
