Pro­gram pow­ers up en­ergy ca­reers

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

NEARLY 50 stu­dents from Kent Street Se­nior High School and Aquinas Col­lege joined 100 oth­ers from across the state to learn about WA’s oil and gas in­dus­try un­der a Chevron ca­reers pro­gram that con­trib­utes to ter­tiary stud­ies and trainee­ships.

Stu­dents gained in­sights into pro­duc­tion pro­cesses, re­cruit­ment and oc­cu­pa­tional health and safety mat­ters at the

three-day LNG Ex­plo­ration Camp in Perth.

Aquinas stu­dent Ju­lian Cox said the camp in­spired him to pur­sue his fu­ture goals, while fel­low stu­dent Lewis Hal­lam said it pre­sented a good pic­ture of the dif­fer­ent ca­reer path­ways on of­fer.

"It re­ally gave me an op­por­tu­nity to learn about the ca­reer paths in Chevron and the en­ergy in­dus­try and I re­ally value that there’s a big fo­cus on safety and putting safety first,” Lewis said.

Kent Street Se­nior High School stu­dents Hay­den Lamb and Michael Patha echoed th­ese sen­ti­ments, with Michael say­ing it had helped him de­velop valu­able life skills.

“The pro­gram and camp is fun, it's in­ter­ac­tive and so dif­fer­ent to other nor­mal sub­jects,” Michael said.
