Are you interested in a career in Maritime Engineering?

The Naval Shipbuilding College and Le Fevre High School (Maritime Education) in conjunction with Flinders University and University of Tasmania (UTAS) are hosting a free information evening next Tuesday 25th October, 4.30-6.30 at Le Fevre High School.

The Maritime Immersion Camp is an annual opportunity open exclusively to South Australian students in Years 9 - 12.

Spotlight on VET

This year several of our Year Ten boys have completed a series of “Try a Trade” days at the Grand Junction Trade Training Centre. These days are an excellent way to dip your toe in the VET area and try a few different trades on for size! Hayden Kerley and Saxon Nickels have both completed Pre-Construction and Electrotechnology Taster Days and have learnt valuable skills, as well as gaining immersion experience which will enable them to access funded VET in the future should they decide this pathway. As a part of their Pre-Construction taster they have completed Work Health Safety training and obtained a White Card, which will now allow them to complete Work Experience on a Construction Site. In addition, they have experienced tiling, bricklaying and carpentry. In the Electrotechnology taster they have mastered some basic Electrotechnology skills, and learnt about careers in Electrotechnology, which will allow them to access a Certificate II or an Apprenticeship.

Keep an eye out in the Ignatian and the Daily Bulletin for more opportunities at GJTTC or Western Technical College for future “Try a Trade” experiences.
