Our Mothers' Day Lunch was a great success, raising more than $1000. Aside from it being an absolutely gorgeous day weather-wise and in such a beautiful outdoor setting under the fig tree, our Year 10 students performed admirably and put together a truly awesome event! Well done guys n gals!
Special mention must go to all of the students who worked so tirelessly to put this event together, and who put in such a fantastic and professional effort on the day.
Work experience is an important component of the Year 10 program and aims to provide students with an opportunity to gain a realistic understanding of the world of work. The hope is also that through their experiences students will increase their confidence, independence and self-awareness.
We started the term with a visit to the Gold Coast Careers Day, where students were exposed to a number of organisations - university and industry-based institutions. The students then began their two-week work placements.
This year students traveled to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Helensvale, Lismore, Byron Bay and Mullumbimby. The students that I visited locally all enjoyed their work experience and their employers spoke highly of them, with some receiving offers of part-time employment. We look forward to hearing their stories and experiences.
