It’s a new year, which means our teaching staff are working hard to plan for the year ahead, our students are enjoying their last few days of holidays before getting ready to return to school, and their parents are making sure they have everything they need for the school year.
By all accounts, it seems it’s the students who are most excited for 2022, especially our Year 12’s who will be graduating at the end of the school year. But until then, here’s what they’re most looking forward to in their final year at The BUSY Schools.
Tyler, Year 12 student at our Salisbury campus said, “This year, I am hoping to gain a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship in Speech Pathology as a result of the work experience I completed last year.”
Jade, Year 12 student at our Shailer Park campus said, “I am really looking forward to welcoming the Year 11 students this year and being a leader for them.”
Mackenzie, Year 12 student at Salisbury said, “I am looking forward to completing my Certificate II in Plumbing this year.”
Sophie, Year 12 student at Salisbury said, “I can’t wait to graduate and receive all the certificates I have worked extremely hard for.”
Armin, Year 12 student at Shailer Park said, “This year, I am hoping to gain a school-based apprenticeship in Construction.”
Kacy, Year 12 student at Shailer Park said, “Last year, I began a school-based traineeship in Hospitality at a wedding Venue in Coolabah Downs.”
“This year, I am looking forward to completing it and seeing what opportunities come from it once I graduate.”
Along with everything our Year 12 students are looking forward to this year, they are most excited to graduate; a goal that some of them previously believed was not possible before coming to BUSY Schools.
Isabella, Year 12 student at our Salisbury campus said, “BUSY Schools gave my mum hope and made me feel optimistic about my future.”
Prior to coming to The BUSY Schools, all students were considered disengaged with their education, but the support and encouraging environment provided at The BUSY Schools has re-engaged them with their education and focused on working life after school.
Kira, Year 12 Graduate from our Cairns campus said, “What surprised me most when I joined BUSY Schools is that there are lots of people like me out there, students that don’t fit the mould that mainstream schooling provides for.”
Lee Aitken, CEO for The BUSY Schools said, “The BUSY Schools provide a nurturing, exciting and engaging place for students who have already disengaged or who may be at risk of disengaging from mainstream schooling.”
“Each year, more people are finding out about our holistic and alternative approach to learning. This year, we have over 130 students enrolled at our Cairns campus, over 175 students enrolled at our Shailer Park campus, and almost 100 students enrolled at our Salisbury campus.”
To those considering attending The BUSY Schools, a current student, Armin says, “Definitely consider it. It’s a good school and it will lead you in the right direction.”
