Our Year 10 students have been
involved in workshops and listening to industry representatives this week during
The week was kicked off by Eric Bailey from QT Mutual
Bank, a former pro-basketballer who has played for USA and Australia.
Eric talked to the students about the challenges he faced as a kid
growing up in Los Angeles and the coping mechanisms he developed to deal with
challenging situations. After his talk he challenged a budding basketball
year 10 student to a 3point playoff. Unfortunately for Eric, he lost and
had to do 25 push-ups.
The students have participated in workshops to get
them ready for the work force and also had mock interviews to help them get job
The week will cap off with the students undergoing work experience
and putting to good use all that they have learnt during the workshops.
