Work Placement
Year 11 Vocational Education student Lachlan Mathieson has undertaken two work placements during the school year. He thoroughly enjoyed his first placement to a tree lopping firm, with this work confirming his interest in the industry. Lachlan’s current placement with Creative Driveways and Fencing has increased his exposure to working in construction, and he has seen how this can also be a very creative industry. Lachlan will spend another week with this organisation before the end of the year.
