Job shadow

For grade 10, 11 and 12 students

Our Education Centre runs a job-shadow initiative for grade 10, 11 and 12 students.

This programme lasts two days and involves observing and helping out behind the scenes and assisting in our vibrant Environmental Education Centre.

We are always flooded with requests to accommodate students at the ends of terms, but can only take a limited number per week; so book as far in advance as possible and try to get time off school at the beginning of, or mid-term.

Early applications always receive preference! Please note that we do not accommodate candidates over weekends or during school holidays.
