Work Experience September School Holidays
During the September school holidays, several students took the opportunity to explore through work experience their interest area to see if it would be a good fit for them. These times allow students to experience what it is to work in a particular industry, see the types of tasks they would do, experience what a week in the life of an employee would look like.
