Glenwood Public School is not only a place where students learn about the world, it is where they get to discover what is best within themselves. Glenwood is a fantastic school with amazing opportunities for everyone. Teachers take pride in giving the students the ‘keys to success in life’ through a strong and effective education.
Mrs Anne Webb, Principal, is not only committed to her students but opens the doors of her school to Year 11 and 12 students who are undertaking week long work placements in either Business Services or Information Technology. Mrs Webb is keen to give these HSC students the best start in their working life. She enjoys giving them challenges and they get to take ownership of their projects. Tasks like Event Management of the Australian Principals Conference for Primary Schools, organising the school concert and creating data bases. Mrs Webb takes their experience beyond mere filing and photocopying and loves to see their minds blossom.
The Work Placement students thoroughly enjoy their placements and it is their feedback that won Glenwood Public School this month’s award.
Mrs Webb encourages other schools and businesses to get involved in the MWLP work placement program. She says “It is a wonderful opportunity to give young people a taste of work and a desire to further their studies and to set them up in a great career in their chosen profession.”
As this month’s outstanding winner, Glenwood Public School will receive profiling in the Campbelltown, Camden and Wollondilly editions of the Macarthur Chronicle, one month’s free advertising on C91.3FM, exposure on www.mwlp.com.au and thanks to United Cinemas Narellan, Grand Seating movie tickets.
