Grade 6 News
This term, the Grade 6 students will be involved in the Passions and Pathways program. This program has been operating since 2012 and is a dynamic partnership with education, business and industry sectors around Bendigo.
Passions and Pathways aims to engage upper primary school students to build an understanding of the ‘world of work’ through a range of authentic experiences in local settings. By lifting student’s aspirations, we hope they see the value of staying in school and completing Year 12 or the equivalent.
Throughout the term, the students will be touring Bunnings Warehouse, Hofmann Engineering, Thales, St John of God hospital, Bendigo Botanic Gardens and CFA Bendigo. The students will also undertake a Project at either Bendigo Pottery, Discovery Centre – Robotics or the Early Learning Centre – Helen Jessen.
We would like to thank all of the organisations for sharing their time and expertise with us.
