Making informed choices about your path after school can be daunting at the best of times, and I sincerely hoped that the numerous exhibitors who formed part of this series of expos, were able to help learners obtain a little more clarity, where needed. I also hope that the events helped to inspire and motivate the learners to reach their goals, and made them realise that anyone can pursue a career of choice through hard work and dedication,' said the City's Mayoral Committee Member for Community Services and Health Councillor Van der Ross.<br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:1109px;" /> </figure><strong>​​End</strong></span><p><br></p>2024-04-28T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#bf9e515d-2ebd-43d3-bcf9-1a7b901986b1;L0|#0bf9e515d-2ebd-43d3-bcf9-1a7b901986b1|career expo;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#e1a5b1a6-9b2b-4790-96ce-f3405c541ea3;L0|#0e1a5b1a6-9b2b-4790-96ce-f3405c541ea3|community10
