Chris­tian col­lege stu­dents en­joy work ex­pe­ri­ence

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS - By year 11 work ex­pe­ri­ence stu­dent Tayla Evans

STU­DENTS in year 10, 11 and 12 from Whit­sun­day Chris­tian Col­lege spent last week on work ex­pe­ri­ence in busi­nesses around the Whit­sun­days and other parts of Queens­land.

They each chose a ca­reer they wanted to try out.

Year 11 stu­dent Deon Ball spent the week with Phys­io­plus Whit­sun­day for his work ex­pe­ri­ence and said he learned a lot from all the staff.

“I got acupunc­ture and was taught why peo­ple got it and I now know what peo­ple go through,” he said.

He also had the chance to try a grip test and blood test. He said he re­ally en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence and it was a pos­si­ble ca­reer choice.

Ai­dan Tate also took part in the col­lege’s work ex­pe­ri­ence pro­gram at Auto Pro in Cannonvale.

“Ev­ery­one was very help­ful, they taught me what cer­tain parts [of cars] did and how they worked,” the year 10 stu­dent said.

Ai­dan was shown how the busi­ness ran and how each cus­tomers re­quire­ments were met. He was able to travel to other com­pa­nies and de­liver or­dered me­chan­i­cal pieces. The ex­pe­ri­ence each stu­dent took away from work­ing all week will help them de­cide their fu­ture ca­reer op­tions.
