Last week here at CVI we were extremely privileged to host six year 10 students from Ballarat High School as part of the 2018 Mindshop Excellence Program. This program is run in conjunction with Commerce Ballarat where students from varying schools spend a week in a workplace and given a 'real life' situation or scenario and they spend the week researching and developing a solution to the situation.
The 6 students we hosted were extremely keen to get in and research the given topic, and provide us with some feedback regarding the topic.
We are absolutely committed to taking all of their ideas on board and looking at all solutions generated.
The teamwork they showed throughout the week was first class, and the students represented themselves, their families and their school with great pride and they should be proud of the way they conducted themselves over the week.
They then had to present their findings at the conclusion of the week to us, their families and representatives from their school, and showed a maturity well beyond their years when making this presentation.
Again, to Summah, Arlee, Jake, Liam, Trillian & Charlie, a massive thank you from all of us here at CVI and well done on your week!
Thank you to Peter Veal, Chris Noonan, Gavin Nash, Jordan McPhan, John Fitzgibbon & Julie Mason for your contributions and facilitating through the week, as well as 'The Ansonia' for allowing us access to their meeting rooms and facilities and Country Casseroles for catering the Friday lunch.
We hope the kids got as much out of it as we did, and look forward to being part of this great workshop program again in the future.
