A Prayer for Ukraine

We pray for the government and people of Ukraine, the people of Russia who live under an authoritarian regime, for the leaders of the world that they will respond with wisdom and courage and for the restraint of evil and the restoration of peace, with justice.

Year 10

Morrisby Career Quiz

All Year 10 students will be completing the Morrisby Career Quiz on Tuesday 1 March. The Morrisby Career Quiz uses psychometric assessments to assist students to learn more about themselves and to discover careers, subjects and courses of further study they may not have previously imagined. All students will participate in a one to one interview with a careers practitioner to discuss the results, how they may be best used and to assist with future pathway planning. 

The College purchases a lifetime subscription to the Morrisby Tool for each student and we strongly encourage students and families to continue using this to guide their ongoing future careers pathway. A summary report will be shared with each student after their interview and we strongly encourage parents and guardians to read this through with them. Further information can be found at

If you have any further enquiries please contact staff at the Avila Careers Hub
