Life Camp, a school-based career intervention, is pivotal to individual student planning and career guidance in S5 and S6.  Run in its eighth year, the camp is themed on life planning and team building.  In the camp, students discuss their career test results in relation to their academic and career goals, prepare for transition challenges, explore career options by meeting alumni of different study and work backgrounds, build team spirit and most importantly have fun.
