This year the secondary business students have been involved in a number of events and information sessions that was organized by the Business Liaison Association (BLA).
In Term 1 students attended the annual Young Entrepreneurs Breakfast and had the opportunity to listen to the success stories of a young entrepreneur (Ms Chelsey Phillips). At this particular event, Alanah Tofilau and Lorien Broadwater took on the important duties to be the Masters of Ceremonies (MC’s) for the morning. They did a great job!
Earlier this term, students interacted with String – a Melbourne based brand creator and online marketing consultant. She encouraged students to be creative and to follow their dreams.
Last week the Year 10 Business students had the opportunity to attend an industry visit at BDO in the Cairns Corporate Towers. They were given a tour of the offices and experienced the different aspects of Accountancy in a real-world setting.
