During the final week of Term 2 most of our Year 10 students undertook their week of Work Experience. The program is part of the broader Senior Years Careers Education program at the College and is an important aspect of Year 10 at Whitefriars College. The placements were extremely varied as were the locations where our students undertook their experience. Hopefully the students were able to gain insights into particular careers or fields of work that will help inform their subject and career choices over the coming months and years. The College received some glowing feedback from employers indicating that our students were very effective ambassadors for the College and their families.
