Students from Northpine’s Year 12 Fitness class have each completed a Certificate II in Sport & Recreation and a Certificate III in Fitness. This accomplishment was completed over both Years 11 and 12.
Huon, Michael, Abbey, Chantelle, Joseph, Benjamin, Natalia, Kiah, Liam and Jack were all successful in completing the above mentioned certifications.
Most of the students were also enrolled in Senior Physical Education, however, this was not a requirement to be eligible for the course. All students underwent ten hours or more of industry work experience in gyms and with fitness professionals recently to finish their course competencies. Although some may not choose to work within the fitness industry in future, Vocational Education & Training in Schools (VETiS) has given them a head start and foot in the door to greater employment opportunities and early entry into the workforce with a qualification upon graduating from Year 12.
This graduating class was a tight knit group and worked very well together, helping each other achieve success. The class was a mix of outdoor education enthusiasts, coaches within their sport of expertise and gym buffs. We wish them all very well in their continued journey in health and fitness beyond the school gates. Their awesome attitudes and energy will be missed next year!
