Two former students who participated in the Vocational Education and Training in Schools program (VETiS) with our District have concluded their school studies with remarkable HSC results from the completion of the program.

Lucy Spisiak from Caroline Chisholm College achieved second place in the state for the HSC subject Human Services Curriculum Framework while Mikayla Goodwin from St Columba’s Catholic College was ranked fifth in NSW for the same subject.

“We’re thrilled to see the success Lucy and Mikayla have achieved through their studies with us and we’re incredibly proud to help foster the passion and enthusiasm of this next generation of health care workers,” says Clinical Nurse Educator, Kia-Lee Sutton.

Now working as an assistant in nursing at Nepean Hospital, Lucy Spisiak credits her study through our District with enabling her to gain real insight into the nursing profession.

“By providing their personal experiences in health care, the teachers ensured what we learned was meaningful and engaging,” Lucy says.

While working at Nepean Hospital, Lucy is looking forward to improving her clinical skills as she completes her university studies.
