On Tuesday February 11th the Year 10 students were visited by 2 representatives from the Australian Defence Force. Gerry Foran (Army) and Greg Huckstep (Airforce) gave an informative presentation about the different roles available to people in the Defence Forces.
Students learnt about the different entry levels, the application process and the academic requirements for joining the Defence Forces. They were shown an example of an aptitude test that applicants might face, and heard about the competitive nature of the application process.
Students were warned to be careful with their electronic profile as social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook are often checked during the application process. Greg and Gerry highlighted the importance of Maths for all applicants and encouraged students to complete Year 12 before applying for any of the Defence Forces.
