After a yummy morning tea provided by the staff at Victory Church, Pooraka, students participated in their choice of 3 workshops from the 12 on offer. These discussed, ideas, finances, web presence and a range of items which can support an entrepreneur.

Past Paralowie student, Shaona Imaru, was the MC for the event and did an amazing job.

Following the event, students have the chance to gain support if they have an idea they’d like to pursue. A community of mentors from business and industry are ready to assist.

Thanks to the NASSSA Career Development Team for bringing the event together, and in particular the Leadership of Sally Stewart of Para Hills High School.
