RSA and RCG courses
General: Posted 27-8-14 Deadline - No Deadline
After talking to several teachers, the consensus is that there is too much happening in the remainder of this term with new work still being done in mnay subjects, some assessment tasks and lots of activities for the end of Year 12 (eg mass, retreats, Community Service Day, Walkathon) to offer the RSA and RCG over two evenings going until 9.30pm. There are a lot of students not attending school as it is so the possibility of students being too tired to come to school or the walkathon means the courses will be offered in the week after your Year 12 Graduation. Both courses will cost $215 total if between 20-30 students do it. Please email me if you have a strong preference for either Monday 10th - Tuesday 11th Nov or the two nights of Tuesday 11th - Wednesday 12th Nov.

Careers in Rail
Career Choice: Posted 27-8-14 Deadline - No Deadline
Rail Careers Week is being held from the 8-14 September. Rail is a strong industry with a prosperous future, however it is not always top of mind for those searching for a career. With forecasted industry expansion, attracting a suitable pipeline of skilled and talented employees to meet future demand is essential. With your help, we aim to connect with the next generation of employees through Rail Careers Week and promote Rail’s many advantages. Whether potential candidates are leaving school, changing careers or returning to the workforce, the rail industry seeks to attract applicants who are able to bring a variety of skills and attributes which will not only offer them a fulfilling career but will add value to rail across the Australasian region. Although Rail is a major national industry, employing more than 110,000 people in a wide range of occupations, disciplines and professions, not many candidates consider rail when they are searching for a career. With more than 180 rail organisations located all across Australia and New Zealand, the industry provides a wide range of employers comprising private and public operators, passenger operators, freight operators, track owners and managers, manufacturers and suppliers operating in urban, regional, and rural areas of Australia. Each person working in Rail plays a vital role in providing quality customer service, designing, building and maintaining new trains and infrastructure. They are working to ensure efficient and safe railways for the future.
