Nagle College, a participant of the AFL Sports Ready Traineeship (a program that provides a recently graduated students with the opportunity to combine full-time employment with study), has recently announced two 2018 students as trainees for 2019.

Madeline Hack and Melissa Young, will be working with Nagle College camp co-coordinator, Jeff Hannington, participating in and assisting with the planning for a number of camps, sporting trips and activities throughout the year. This includes the year seven to nine school camps, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, years 10 to 12 outdoor education, fishing at Lake Tyers, and more.

Through their work at the college, Miss Hack and Miss Young will gain formal training and qualifications as well as practical, hands-on work experience in an area of potential interest.

In addition to planning and assisting with camps and activities, the trainees will be working in a leadership role with what used to be their fellow students.

“The best parts for me last year were the year 12 outdoor ed Source to Sea expedition, and the year 7 camps,” one of last year’s trainees, Daniel Churches, said.

“It was a new experience being able to help plan the camp and then get to teach and hang out with the year sevens.”

Nagle College is looking forward to welcoming Miss Hack and Miss Young back to the college in 2019, and would like to acknowledge and thank last year’s trainees, Kirra Cuckelly and Daniel Churches, for their enthusiasm and dedication throughout the year.
