Stu­dents given great op­por­tu­nity

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

TWO Bel­mont City Col­lege Year 10 stu­dents have been help­ing out at the Aber­nethy Road Sal­va­tion Army op-shop as part of a fash­ion and tex­tiles pro­gram.

The stu­dents re­paired sec­ond-hand gar­ments for re­sale and cre­ated mer­chan­dis­ing dis­plays.

They also learnt cus­tomer re­la­tions skills and were in­volved in the day-to-day run­ning of the store.

School prin­ci­pal Dar­rel Le Mercier said the work ex­pe­ri­ence had helped to in­spire artis­tic de­vel­op­ment through dis­cov­ery and ex­plo­ration.

“It also pro­vided them with an op­por­tu­nity to in­ves­ti­gate fash­ion in a busi­ness world,” Mr Le Mercier said.

He said the stu­dents worked ex­tremely hard and they also had to catch up on their stud­ies in their own time for classes they missed while work­ing at the store. d453969
