End of Term Reminder

This is a reminder that it is the last day of school for the term tomorrow. As mentioned last week we will be having an assembly starting at 1.30pm, which will be run by our Secondary Class. At the assembly each class will get the chance to share some of their learning for the term and awards will also be given out. Members of the community can attend, but social distancing guidelines should be observed. 

The assembly will finish at 2.10, when students will be dismissed for the holidays with the bus departing at 2.15pm. Hope to see our parents and members of the community tomorrow.

Industry Sprint Event - Port Augusta

Are you interested in finding out about how partnerships with local schools can assist you to grow your own local, specialised, and skilled workforce? Do you have apprentices or trainees and would like to hear updates around new changes for 2022 onwards? Would you like to hear how pathways into your workplace for school students will help to keep your workforce within your local community?

Vocational Pathways Advisors will be in Pt Augusta and Whyalla from Tuesday the 23rd to Thursday the 25th of March 2021, and will be available to meet with you to discuss the following;

  • the employment of school-based apprentices and trainees
  • work experience opportunities
  • industry immersion
  • vocational education and training
  • other ways that school partnerships can benefit your business.

Individual Business Meetings – One on one at your business or our regional offices (Pt Augusta or Whyalla):

  • Tuesday the 23rd to Thursday the 25th of March 2021. Times between 0800 and 1800.  Contact or 0408 178 015 for an appointment.

There is a large regional information and networking forum in Pt Augusta on Thursday 25th March, where leaders and experts across industry, VET, and education sectors will be in attendance. This event has proven to be highly valuable from other regional areas around the state for employers seeking more information about how to engage and work with young people within their communities, and to also have your voice heard in what you’d like schools to support you with in building employability skills in young people. Additionally, this is also a fantastic opportunity to network with industry leaders around exciting upcoming regional projects.
