Year 10 Work Experience

The Year 10 Work Experience program was a resounding success again this year. The comments from employers were, on the whole, the best we’ve had. I would like to thank all the employers for their participation and for their encouraging evaluations of our students. Most of the students had a wonderful experience at a large variety of different workplaces. I would like to thank the students for their excellent conduct and courteous behaviour, and their parents for finding the worthwhile placements and for supporting their children during the week. I would also like to thank the teachers who so willingly went to visit or phone the many workplaces and for their positive feedback.

Below are comments from some of the organisations involved, as well as from the students themselves.

Student Comments


“I really enjoyed helping the children understand things that they hadn’t before and you need to be patient as the kids get distracted easily” – Martin Astell

“I experienced serving people and seeing the smile on their faces. Some customers were very grumpy and during rush hour we all need to work as a team” – Maya Phiri

“Research is more fun than I expected. I learned a lot of scientific terms and the uses of enzymes and antiobodies in the body. Working with adults can be interesting and fun” – Sean Gibbon

“I found there was flexibility and less restrictions when working. Being a lawyer requires problem solving skills, being polite and understanding to clients, and being ethical about decisions” – Richmond Cai

“I learnt that the only way to be good and fair in work is to be honest. Being devoted makes work easier. A challenge I faced was getting tired on some days and forcing yourself to wake up early” – Eddie Mwenda

“I got to learn more about the anatomy of the body and saw how the patients were very close with their Physiotherapist. Also, Physios are very relaxed in their down time – eating cheesecake and chocolate” – Rachael Fleming

“I got to go to the District Court and saw the judge sentencing the accused. One interesting thing I got to do was learn about transcripts” – Sui Sang te Chung

“Learning new things about your teeth was cool” – Timothy Komaiya
