Biggest Morning Tea fun

The Seniors’ Committee had a blast creating a bake sale for the Middle and Senior School to help support the Cancer Council in the Biggest Morning Tea last Thursday 16 June.

All students came together to help bake a wide range of yummy treats for all to enjoy. Recess saw a huge crowd gather in the Robert Dean Senior Student Centre, both staff and students. It was great to see everyone in the College support the huge effort made by all Senior Committee members and show their support for the Cancer Council. Over $300 was raised through the bake sale, and all funds made will be donated to help the Tasmanian Cancer Council in its efforts to support all those affected by cancer.

Have you thought about working in the Aged Care Sector?

Aged and Community Services Australia (ACSA) is excited to advise that the Women Discovering Aged Care Careers Program is being delivered statewide.

Registrations are open for 3 key components of this FREE Program

Women’s contribution to the sector in providing quality aged care to older Australians is invaluable. ACSA is supporting women (aged 16 – 64) to gain a greater understanding of career pathways and job roles within the aged care sector. We are connecting women across Tasmania and encouraging them to explore the diverse range of careers on offer in aged care. Through the program, ACSA will provide the information and resources for women to have an awareness and understanding of the skills employers are looking for. Our work will assist women from all backgrounds and in all stages of life to build their confidence, connections and work capability.

Registrations are now open for (women aged 16 – 64) for these 3-hour sessions in various venues around the State:

Career Discovery Days: providing opportunities for women to learn about the sector, diversity of job roles and career pathways and hear from staff who work in aged care.
Practical Experience Days: providing ‘hands-on’ practical experience to support women who have an interest in and want to increase their understanding of the skills and aptitude employers are looking for. Note: attendance at a Career Discovery Day is recommended prior to attending this session.
