John Tonkin College students find career inspiration during unique workshops

Students at John Tonkin College had a chance to discover career pathways and learn resilience training at a recent workshop, known as IZRA.

More than 100 year 9 students attended the Creative and Resilience workshop, held over three days in June at the Tindale campus.

The hands-on vocational workshops were aimed at inspiring the students to develop their own skills and passions for career choices and preparing them for the workforce.

Activities helped to inspire the students in their career choices, while also learning about developing their skills, passions and hobbies into a vocation or business.
