Christian college students enjoy work experience
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.
