A Keynote Speech Delivered By HRH The Prince Of Wales At The World Economic Forum In Davos, Switzerland
Do we want to go down in history as the people who did nothing to bring the world back from the brink in time to restore the balance when we could have done? I don’t want to. And just think for a moment – what good is all the extra wealth in the world, gained from “business as usual”, if you can do nothing with it except watch it burn in catastrophic conditions?

Back To School 2020: Have A Great Term 1!
‘What Subjects Do I Choose For My Last Years Of School?’
We are being asked to do work experience this year, in a field we might like to work in. We are being asked to think about choosing electives that are directing us towards our career choices.I have no idea what I want to do! I haven’t yet found anything I am particularly good at. I feel like I am being left behind. That others are making choices about their lives that I am not prepared for yet. Is this normal? - Lachlan, year 10
- Many young people feel this way – it is normal!
- locking yourself into one career path too early can be risky
- it’s important to be flexible and learn transferable skills
