Simone’s Story

profile-simone“My name is Simone and I am doing the Work Education course. I do a subject called Packing.

We travel by 2 trains to get to Starite in West Footscray.

At Starite we need to wear safety clothes. We unpack boxes, sort the things in colours and sizes and then we pack them in boxes. We also use the pallet jack to move the pallets. We wrap up kitchen things in a towel. These are for the refugees. I like packing because it’s fun, interesting and you learn new skills. We also work in a team.”

Simone is studying the Certificate 1 in Work Education Foundation (General) and has completed practical placements in Packing as part of her vocational options training.
