Oakhill Career Day 2017

Oakhill Career Day 2017

Oakhill School

A career is an individual’s journey through learning, work and other aspects of life. We are proud to host the second Careers Day at Oakhill and would like to welcome all visitors and exhibitors on the Oakhill campus.  This day has come about due to an amazing collaboration between enthusiastic parents and staff, and members of the greater Knysna community. All share a passion for inspiring our students, by exposing them to various careers and training opportunities, beyond the scope of school. The day aims to inspire, motivate, and enrich the lives of our youth, and of our community. We hope you enjoy and are equally enriched by your experience at our school.
