Year 10 students dive into career goals

LOCAL businesses have once again benefited from Year 10 work experience as St Joseph's Stanthorpe students ventured into the workforce.

The three-day adventure ensured an informative, fun experience for the students as they got a taste of the workforce.

Year 10 students across the nation select a job that interests them and is linked with their chosen career pathway. The variety of jobs comes with a range of skills to help the students later on in life, as the goal of the work experience is to prepare them for the future.

Four students from St Joseph's School Stanthorpe discussed their journey with work experience.

Anika Spiller described her experience at Smail's Swim School as enjoyable.

"The weather is perfect and it's really good to help and interact with kids,” Anika said.

Meanwhile, Joshua Mahoney spent some time at C & K Kindergarten.

He described his work experience employers as "really nice, very informative, fun and allow for you to make mistakes”.

Isabella Baronio chose to work at Vince Catanzaro Solicitor's. Bella was kept busy with accounting, sitting in on meetings and learning what it's all about.

"I'm truly getting the real experience,” she said.

Joshua Musemeci worked at Stanthorpe's YMCA for a look in on personal training and physiology.

"This experience hasn't failed to live up to my expectations,” Josh said.
