Kyabram Industry Day
Local industries and services gathered together to present careers workshops to Year 9 students from St Augustine’s College and Kyabram P-12 College.
About 135 students swarmed into St Augustine’s Brigidine Centre to hear personal stories of career journeys from 21 workshops. Students had the opportunity to ask questions and enjoyed some great interactive moments in a number of the workshops.
Businesses put together great workshops for the students to experience, including a “mock court” by lawyers from Dawes & Vary Riordan. Kyabram Health had a number of modalities to present and some real hands on nursing techniques to learn while Teaching, Veterinarian and Police were all popular.
All students participated in an O H & S workshop, presented by the Campaspe Shire Council, to better prepare them for entering the workplace and gain an understanding of workplace safety.
The afternoon session gave all students the chance to participate in the “Voice of Our Youth” survey and a great motivational session from Andy Bell.
A panel of local business people finished off the day with a Q & A session about their personal career journeys, hints and tips.
St Augustine’s provided a great morning tea bag for each student and the Kyabram P12 Life Skills group cooked and served a delicious lunch.
