Students have the opportunity to:
The work experience program is held at Thebarton Police Barracks, Band Room, located at the corner of Port Road and Gaol Road, Thebarton.
The program culminates in a concert primarily performed for family, friends, classroom and instrumental teachers, but is also open to the public.
At the end of the program students are provided with a recording of the concert, and have access to photographs and video of the concert and activities which they can use as part of their school portfolios and for assessment purposes. The program complies with Department of Education and Children's Services Workplace learning guidelines.
Last year's Work Experience Flyer provides an overview of the program.
NOTE: The work experience program for 2021 has been cancelled.
