Students given great opportunity
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
