KSHS Workplace Learning

October 11, 2018

Year 12 students are concluding their placements in Week 8 of Term 3, and have done a brilliant job of representing our school within the community.

A big thank you to all the employers that have hosted our Year 12’s and Year 11’s throughout the year, without the generosity of the community we would not have such a successful program!

The Katanning Regional Business Awards are being held in conjunction with Rotary this year, and the two school categories of Workplace Learning Student of the Year and School Based Trainee of the Year will be again awarded to top achievers. Nominations have closed, and finalists have been selected, with a total of 11 students nominated. Employers nominated their students for the award categories, thank you for the effort that went into the nomination forms. The award ceremony will be held on Saturday 29 September at the Katanning Country Club, finalists have been notified by mail.

This year we have been fortunate enough to have two new prize donations for our awards. ATC WorkSmart Albany have donated the prize money for ATC School Based Traineeship of the Year, and Maxima have donated the prize money for the Maxima Workplace Learning Student of the Year. A big thank you to both organisations for not only supporting our students throughout the year with School Based Traineeship opportunities, but also jumping on board to ensure our students are recognised for their hard work!
