Our Year 11 students are enjoying their second week of work experience this week, after overcoming the challenges of getting to their work places, mostly on time, by public transport. We have students working at various locations including the Public Records Office (Sharra), Peter Stevens Motorcycles (Brayden), Melbourne Girl’s College (Chloe), Howard Florey Institute (Ben) and Lamborghini Melbourne (Jamie). We have students working in various jobs, including hairdressing (Carly), childcare (Kelly Hogan and Kelly Lucas), fashion (Amy and Hannah), financial planning (Nikki) and architecture (Brianna).
Some of the evening activities have included the Skydeck at Eureka Tower, a tour of St Hilda’s College at Melbourne University, a trip to the Australia-Japan soccer match at the MCG, movies at Crown and Lygon street, a meal in China Town and swimming at the Melbourne Aquatic Centre. Twenty students participated in the first week and fourteen continue with their second week in Melbourne, while the remainder have local job placements. We thank Judy Ballard, who has replaced Graeme Poynton, for her excellent organisation of this wonderful opportunity for our students.
