Knox students can expect a connection to industry as part of their time in the Academy of Global Competency and last week our Year 10 boys had the privilege of hearing from a range of experts as part of their Global Challenge project.
Knox Grammar School
The topics were varied and boys were able to choose the disciplines that closely matched their interests, which were as follows:
Future of Work
David Caspari – Knox Grammar School Council Deputy Chairman and CEO and Managing Director, Janison Group
Innovation and Technology
Harrison Faktor (OKG17) – Healthcare AI Specialist, Microsoft
Ben Crowe – Director Carbon Markets, CBL/Expansiv
Kate Dodds – PhD: Living Seawalls in Sydney Harbour
We Are Mobilise – charity focusing on homelessness and associated challenges
Health and Wellbeing
Adam Shaw – Knox PDHPE teacher, Year 7 Team Leader and former NRL player
The Year 10 students will use this new information to dive deeper into the area/s of their choice in Term 4, producing projects outlining and proposing solutions to a series of questions posed by the expert presenters.
The sessions were a fantastic opportunity for the boys to gain an understanding of the new work mindset (a term introduced by Mr Caspari to explain professional environments of the future!)
Thank you to Mr Caspari, Mr Faktor, Mr Crowe, Dr Dodds, We Are Mobilise and Mr Shaw for their time and insights.
