We are a small, isolated rural school located in a paddock (the school stands isolated – not even a shop or post box, only the principal’s house.).Being a small school we have opted to work with other schools in the area. We have a threeyear cycle underway.

Year 9 students participate in the New Horizons Camp run by Lameroo Regional Community School. This aims to encourage students to explore the option of selfemployment within their local area.

Year 10 students participate in a Work Observation camp in Adelaide in conjunction with the students from Karoonda Area School. This camp explores the range of jobs available to students, possible career paths and provides information on how to get there. It also examines part time work and includes a ‘city orientation’ to familiarise country students with Adelaide and transport systems.

Year 11 students participate in Work Experience / Work Placements in line with their VET modules. Students are encouraged to go to Adelaide and utilise public transport (after extensive planning and support from their teachers). In the future it is hoped that students will also involve TAFE institutes.
