Year 10 students will be participating in the Work Experience Program from Monday 18 to Friday 22 June. Students are required to organise a placement before the end of Term 1. If additional time is required please contact Ms Julie Ennor (Work Experience Co-ordinator) or myself in the Careers Department.

Students are required to return the initial form no later than Thursday 29 March, which is the last day of Term 1.  An official Work Experience package will then be prepared and sent to the employer for their signature.
