On Wednesday, 10 August, we hosted our inaugural speed mentoring session in the Senior Library, where current students had the opportunity to engage in dynamic discussions about careers, skills and studies with Waverley College alumni.
The aim was to create a space where students could ask questions and gain insights into various industries in a short time. At the start of the 1.5-hour session, Chris Peralta (WCOB 1993), encouraged mentors and mentees alike to consider what their superpower is, and how this can be nurtured to ensure they strive to become the best version of themselves.
Our mentors, ranging from the graduating classes of 1976 to 2019, each had unique skills and experience that, by all accounts, has inspired the mentees and even provided clear directions for future pathways. We are incredibly grateful to our 15 Old Boy mentors for generously sharing their time and expertise.
