STAFF at Jordan River Learning Federation Senior School (JRLF) – particularly Sandy Menadue, principal, and Maree Conrad Wilson, assistant principal for years 11 and 12 – are delighted that an unprecedented four students represented the school at the recent Tasmanian Training Awards.
The four nominated students, Corey Burgess, Brooke Faltusz-Cashion, and Sharnie Clark for Australian School-based Apprentice of the Year and Bradley Cate for Vocational Student of the Year went through a rigorous selection and interview process, and were outstanding at the awards dinner at Wrest Point Casino.
It is with absolute joy we can advise that Sharnie Clark is the 2016 winner of the Australian school-based apprentice of the year category. It is really exciting for both Sharnie, and Jordan River Learning Federation Senior School to have an achievement of this calibre. It shows us that the programs, learning, and support we are providing to our students is first class.
Sharnie will travel to Darwin in November to represent Tasmania in the Australian Training Awards.
We are so proud of the massive achievement made by all our finalists and well done to them all.
