Whitsunday Times - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

PROSER­PINE State High School takes pride in pro­vid­ing an ed­u­ca­tional pro­gram strength­ened by com­mu­nity part­ner­ships.

Their school motto “SUC­CESS. TO­GETHER.” high­lights the com­mit­ment to every stu­dent hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity to suc­ceed through pos­i­tive and re­spect­ful re­la­tion­ships.

Through these part­ner­ships stu­dents grad­u­ate as con­fi­dent, car­ing and com­mu­nity minded adults.

Com­mu­nity part­ner­ships have been strength­ened this year with the in­tro­duc­tion of the Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion & Train­ing’s pi­lot pro­gram ‘VAK8’ in­volv­ing Tourism Whit­sun­days and their tourism busi­ness mem­bers.

Year 12 stu­dents have the op­por­tu­nity to com­plete a Cer­tifi­cate II in Tourism with a mix­ture of class­room train­ing and work place­ment at var­i­ous tourism busi­nesses through­out the Whit­sun­days, with an aim to se­cure em­ploy­ment in the in­dus­try at the com­ple­tion of Year 12.

School Based Ap­pren­tice­ships and trainee­ships have also in­creased through­out 2017 al­low­ing stu­dents to study for their Queens­land Cer­tifi­cate of Ed­u­ca­tion (QCE), work for an em­ployer, earn a wage, and train to­wards a recog­nised vo­ca­tional qual­i­fi­ca­tion while com­plet­ing sec­ondary school­ing.

There are 25 stu­dents in Years 10 to 12 who are school based ap­pren­tices or trainees.

They work in a va­ri­ety of fields such as fit­ness, an­i­mal stud­ies, marine op­er­a­tions, car­pen­try, hair­dress­ing, IT, dis­abil­ity ser­vices and more.

PSHS stu­dents are ex­plor­ing a range of ca­reer fields.

PSHS is set­ting stu­dents up for suc­cess in the fu­ture.
