Late last year we were presented with a fantastic opportunity to offer one lucky Cert III student the chance to work with Myra Perez and the My Violet team on an exciting event!
After running a competition amongst our current Certificate III students, Nerija Rupsys' was hand picked by the My Violet team to work on an event for Penfolds wine. Nerija loved the experience and really made the most of it getting in on all of the action! "I had so much fun and learnt a lot! Really opened up a new side of Floristry for me!"
We feel that it is so important for each and every one of our students to experience first hand working in the industry, hence why we are always looking for and promoting exclusive work experience opportunities to our students.
We also received some lovely feedback from the My Violet team: "She was an absolute delight - what stood out in particular was her enthusiasm and initiative - it was great having someone that had the confidence to use her skills and resources without being told! In fact, Myra was so impressed that I believe she has discussed with Nerija the possibility of getting in touch in the future with regards to upcoming paid work! We field many requests for people wanting to work with My Violet, so this is a really big compliment to not only Nerija herself but the training she has received/ completed."
The Pearsons School team look forward to an exciting 2019 ahead and in turn sharing many more student experiences with our readers!
