Shay’s our top phar­macy stu­dent

Isis Town and Country - - NEWS -

STUDY­ING for an OP is tough for most, but a pas­sion for help­ing others has seen Friendlies Phar­macy trainee Shay An­der­son go above and be­yond.

The Isis Dis­trict High School stu­dent is com­plet­ing her school-based trainee­ship on top of her Year 12 stud­ies, and her hard work has been recog­nised by the Queens­land branch of the Phar­macy Guild of Aus­tralia which has crowned her Stu­dent of the Month.

“She is a con­stant won­der (jug­gling) all of her com­mit­ments and main­tain­ing a high level of work,” Shay’s trainer Sharyn McEr­lean said.

“Shay is an out­stand­ing stu­dent, and I’m con­tin­u­ally im­pressed by her pro­fes­sion­al­ism.

“Not only that, but Shay is a for­ward thinker. She an­tic­i­pates what is re­quired of her and goes above and be­yond her du­ties with­out need for guid­ance.”

Shay’s love of phar­macy is sim­ple – know­ing that “by giv­ing peo­ple med­i­ca­tion, you’re help­ing them get bet­ter”.

“Every­one here is al­ways will­ing to help – I’ve learned a lot.”

Shay will re­ceive a stu­dent of the month cer­tifi­cate and go into the draw to win the 2016 Stu­dent of the Year, in­clud­ing a Full Phar­macy Assistant Na­tional Con­fer­ence Reg­is­tra­tion for 2017.
