Vincentia High School likes to embrace the partnerships and connections it formed within the community.
The school recently hosted a special morning tea to acknowledge the overwhelming support it received from local businesses and community organisations throughout the year.
Linking with the wider community has immeasurable benefits for the school’s students and they gain the necessary skills to seek employment during summer break and post-school years.
The morning tea was hosted in the school’s café with students serving tea, espresso coffee and homemade delights that they had prepared that morning.
Guests were presented with certificates of appreciation and thanked by principal Ken Bates and careers advisor Maree McNeil.
Vincentia High School offers a variety of vocational programs to students in years 10, 11 and 12.
These programs allow students to engage in industry based learning and flexible education pathways into employment post-school years.
Over 200 year 10 students participated in work experience in 2018 and the school currently has 10 School Based Apprenticeship/Traineeship (SBAT) students placed with local organisations.
SBAT allows students to undertake paid work and vocational study as part of their HSC pathway.
