Bethany student places 1st in Business Services Worldskills Competition

WorldSkills Australia aims to encourage Australians to celebrate vocational education and training, shift perceptions and create the understanding that to learn a skill, to choose a skills-based career, is one of the most important decisions a young person and their family will ever make.

The Regional Competition is the first step on a journey with WorldSkills Australia that could lead students to competing at a national, or even international level.

Racquele Bechara of Year 11 competed in the Business Services division of the Worldskills competition on Monday 23 October 2017. This competition involves students working through a number of administration skills that would be used in an office environment. Competitors had to complete tasks that relate to processing and completing daily work activities, using business technology, producing word processed documents, handling mail and creating spreadsheets and databases.

Racquele performed all the tasks to a high standard within the allocated time frames and in a simulated office environment. Her professionalism, maturity and aptitude were evident on the day and this resulted in her placing first in the regional competition.  

On behalf of the school community I would like to extend our congratulations to Racquele on an excellent accomplishment and wish her well in the next competition round.
