Due to the success of their previous Discovery Days, ICHM have decided to release further dates! These Discovery Days are a great way for students to be exposed to the incredible Hotel & Hospitality Industry – we believe, now more than ever due to many school expos not running over the last two years, that students need to be exposed to what career paths and study options there are available for them.
Our Discovery Days are aimed towards year 12 students who are unsure on what their next step may be when they leave school, or for students who are interested in business, hotel management and hospitality, and want to discover more about a possible career path in a luxury hotel. It is an opportunity for prospective students to experience the ICHM learning approach as well as get the chance to gain a behind the scenes experience at two of Adelaide’s finest luxury venues (EOS by SkyCity and The Oval Hotel at Adelaide Oval). The Discovery Day is free of charge to students and includes a complementary lunch!
When is the next Discovery Day*?
Friday September 24th, from 9:30am to 3:30pm
Friday October 8th, from 9:30am to 3:30pm
Monday November 29th, from 9:30am to 3:30pm
The Discovery Day’s do run on a weekday, so students would need to be able to get the day away from school, however, will spend the day discovering how exciting a career in hospitality and business management can be – I am sure they will leave inspired and ready for the next step. Registration is simple, they can register on the website https://www.ichm.edu.au/discovery-day-2021

Year 12 Mentor's Breakfast
Mentor’s Breakfast Year 12 students are all invited to sign up for the annual Mentor’s Breakfast. This is a formal, sit-down breakfast whereby students are matched up with a Old Ignatians to discuss a variety of courses with a current student who is studying at their chosen institution. This event is a great way to get a behind the scenes look at the course and ask the questions that the uni can’t answer! Do I really need assumed knowledge? How hard is the maths? What are the best electives to choose? The new and improved menu features Ham and Cheese Croissants, Pancakes, Waffles, Fresh Fruit Salad and a Barista Coffee through a coffee cart! The sign up sheet is on the Careers Window, numbers are limited. RSVP 23rd September. When? Thursday 14th October, 7.30am Where? Kranevitter Hall
