Growing up, Abrianna moved around a lot so moving from one school to another has become somewhat second nature to her. Constantly moving had its drawbacks though, because it meant Abrianna always had to make new friends and adjust to new teachers and school environments.
Abrianna also experienced bullying at her previous school, which affected both her learning and mental health.
Finding it difficult to keep up with her schooling, one of her family members had heard of BUSY Schools and suggested this to her. Adrianna was willing to give BUSY Schools a try.
“I began Year 11 at BUSY Schools Shailer Park earlier this year and straight away I noticed the students are friendly, I can keep up with the schoolwork because the teachers take the time to explain things to me when I’m having trouble understanding something,” said Abrianna.
“I get along really well with all of my teachers. They take the time to get to know me whilst maintaining the professional student-teacher relationship. They also ensure everyone is receiving the assistance they need to stay up to date in their studies,” Abrianna added.
Abrianna recently began work experience at Screen Printing, which she is enjoying. Screen Printing are also excited to have her onboard and have already discussed a potential traineeship following the work experience.
Employment Pathways Officer at BUSY Schools Shailer Park, Karlene Feldbauer, said “There are a lot of great employers out there that are willing to help students and give them the chance to kickstart their careers.”
“I suggested this company for Abrianna because she is really creative and loves building character designs and making videos with them, so I thought this work experience might offer some artistic opportunities for her and I knew she would be a great fit.”
Lee Aitken, CEO for BUSY Schools, said, “It is great when we see students like Abrianna thriving in the BUSY Schools environment. Our staff work together with students to help them find career pathways that suit their desires and abilities”.
Abrianna is now thriving in her education and is exploring career pathways through work experience, thanks to BUSY Schools.
