Learning out of the classroom
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.
