On Tuesday night 14 October the Year 9 students and parents received a presentation on Work Experience 2015 from Sustainable Partnerships. The night was well attended, however if there are some Year 9 families who didn’t receive the necessary Registration Form, this can be obtained from the Future Pathways Office.
There are new TAFE Courses at Caboolture Campus of Brisbane TAFE for Year 11 and 12 students in 2015.

Students in Year 10 who expressed an interest in a School Based Traineeship or Apprenticeship to either me or Mr Heyworth, at the SET PLAN meetings in August or subsequently, can see me concerning making an appointment with Mrs Keirdre Oakes-Ferguson from MEGT/Community Solutions. MEGT has now been absorbed into Community Solutions. Parents are more than welcome to be part of this interview process. A date has yet to be set.
Congratulations go to Izaak West who received a ‘Highly Commended’ at the recent Sunshine Coast Trade Training Centre Awards night.
Year 10 students recently completed their Mock Interviews. Industry representatives noted that our Year 10s should be commended for the quality and standard of the interview skills that they demonstrated.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all the school staff, who voluntarily gave up their time, some at very short notice, to be interviewers and fill in the interviewee evaluation forms and Mrs Melanie Parker for scheduling of interviewers and times.
