YEAR 10 NEWS – Work Experience

Experiencing and engaging with local industry and the world of work provides opportunities for our students to develop greater awareness of future career opportunities. Some of our students who recently participated in the work experience program and explored careers based on their current aspirations, provided positive feedback on their experiences.

“Before I started I wasn’t sure about doing something in law but now I am positive I want to do something within law”
