BIGGENDEN State School’s Year 10 stu­dent Casey Tay­lor has an am­bi­tion to be­come a pas­try chef.

For her week of work ex­pe­ri­ence she headed to Childers to work in the Hot Bread and Cake Shop.

Casey said she had a great time.

“I got the op­por­tu­nity to make meat pies, ap­ple turnovers, pasties sausage rolls and dec­o­rate the prod­ucts,” she said.

Other stu­dents en­joyed their work ex­pe­ri­ence at HD Me­chan­i­cal at Childers, Biggenden Flow­ers & Gifts, Bulimba Vet Hos­pi­tal, Va­candi Hair at Childers, Hether­ing­ton’s Gym at Dalia­nis, Biggenden Dis­trict Health Ser­vices and Biggenden State School.

All stu­dents re­ported pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ences work­ing with adults in the busi­ness world.

The valu­able ex­pe­ri­ences gained, both in self con­fi­dence and work place skills, will be used as step­ping stones in their fu­ture ca­reer path­ways.
