Puckapunyal Army Base Excursion
On Friday September 1st, the members of the Careers Team took a group of 30 students to Puckapunyal Army Base to get first hand information about what life is like in the armed forces. Students visited a range of different information stands, learning about careers in the army from divisions as diverse as artillery, communications, bomb detection canine unit, STEM and IT, fitness training instruction, health and medical, wellbeing and armoured transport. Students learned that there are a wide range of careers within the defence force that are not directly related to combat in warzones. Many of our students were even able to go on a brief tour of the base in an armoured personnel carrier!
