  Grade 9 – Try a Skill Day

On Wednesday, 14 Grade 9 boys attended the Skills Australia, Try a Skill Day. This event is a wonderful way for students to explore possibilities for their education, training and career pathway.   Boys were involved in three elective sessions from a range of experiences including: tradition trades such as plastering, bricklaying and building; horticulture sessions; hospitality based sessions; as well as sessions on engineering and forestry.

Each session included hands-on activities so the boys could experience exactly what each job would entail. Boys also had the chance to be instructed by and talk to instructors who worked in each career field, which was invaluable for many of the boys as they investigate possible career pathways.

Grade 10 – Physiotherapy & Exercise Physiology Work Experience Seminar

- by Luke Swinton

On June 28, ten Grade 10 students visited Back In Motion Physiotherapy to learn about careers in physiotherapy and exercise physiology. Throughout the afternoon, staff talked to us about what courses and subjects to do during college and university to enable students to get into the physiotherapy course. This gave us an insight into what physiotherapy is really about - it's not just to help sports people, there are many different areas of physiotherapy. To finish off the day we went into two groups and participated in four different workshops, that showed us what physiotherapists use in every day practice.

Overall it was a great day for all boys and provided some great knowledge to help students in the future. The boys were very grateful for the opportunity that Back In Motion gave them. We would like to say thank you to the Back In Motion crew.
