Making Connections

In the SACE subject of Industry Connections, our Year 11 Electrotechnology students are developing and applying their knowledge and skills through hands-on projects.

This term, students have had the option to produce a house wiring system model or a digital clock. Both projects require students to identify electrical system components, understand circuit diagrams, fine tune their skills in the use of hand tools as well as CAD/CAM products, and test, fault find and repair any defects.

Creating authentic Middle Eastern flavours

Our Food & Hospitality students have combined various skills in the kitchen to prepare and create a lamb kofta dish. Accompanied with pita bread and a couscous salad, it was all about the flavours! A mix of herbs and spices have taken taste buds on a middle eastern adventure.

A focus of the dish was on the warm, fragrant pita bread made from scratch. This delicious round flatbread is easy to make at home with a simple dough requiring few ingredients and cooked in an oiled skillet.

Thrive@Work Student Leadership Program

It’s National Careers Week, 15-21 May 2023, and we’re excited to have kicked-off a new student Personal Leadership Pilot Program at the College!

Over the next 14 weeks, several Year 11 and 12 students will be participating in a Personal Leadership program facilitated by Generation Thrive. This is an exciting opportunity for students to go beyond the familiar technical and educational skills training to further develop in-demand and transferrable life and personal skills to set them apart in the workforce and create a habit of achievement.

Participating in their first workshop this week, students have been introduced to the program where they will now start planning their future goals, build habits and confidence to gain and succeed in employment, and learn to thrive across all areas of life.

The program is funded by CITB South Australia and led by Generation Thrive with a blend of face-to-face group workshops and independent online learning sessions.

Thank you to Olivia and Courtney for an awesome introduction to the program!
