Aranmore students on pathway to becoming everyday heroes

10 February 2023

Five students from Aranmore Catholic College in Leederville have been accepted into the Certificate II Community Health and Wellbeing Course – a highly competitive course which provides students with the foundation skills, knowledge, and confidence to be able to work in a healthcare environment.

Mackenzie, Monica, Siena, Giorgia and Maddi can use the course as a pathway to additional qualifications while completing paid school-based traineeship and a Diploma in Enrolled Nursing post-school – to name a few benefits!

Monica, who has always dreamt of a career where she can help people and give back to the community, plans to use the traineeship as a pathway to nursing.

Mackenzie said she was encouraged to apply for the course because a ‘nursing career has plenty of opportunity to not only grow as a person but also grow my career possibilities. Nursing has always been a career option I wanted to pursue because there’s a lot of flexibility within the role as well as where you can choose to work.’

Maddi is dreaming big after being accepted into the course which will lead to ‘doing a job I have dreamt about doing and one that I know I will really enjoy doing because it helps people.’

Siena said she was encouraged to apply for the programme because:

‘At that point of the year I was confused on what subjects to pick, and especially what career I wanted to pursue. I noticed a few other career path options were available to pick, but none of them sparked my interest. When Mr Rodgers sent out the message for the nursing course, I was convinced this was what I wanted to do. I could tell I really wanted this and was further encouraged by my friends also wanting to apply.’

She is looking forward to the course providing a pathway to university and to becoming a Registered Nurse.
