CareerLink: Ready for the Real World

Year 12 CareerLink students Zac and Sam, who are working towards a Certificate IV in Live Production and Technical Services through WAAPA, have recently had the opportunity to work with PADWA and Director Christopher Horsey on the musical ‘Newsies Jr.’ at Tivoli Theatre – and are taking it to the 2023 Fringe World Festival.

Here at John Septimus Roe Anglican Community School (JSRACS), we cater to all learning types by providing our students with a multitude of pathways to choose from. One of these is our CareerLink pathway – which affords students the opportunity of completing a VET Certificate course in conjunction with a Workplace Learning Endorsed Program. These endorsed programs provide students with a learning opportunity that may not necessarily be provided through traditional pathways such as ATAR or General courses. 


Year 12 students Zac and Sam (Class of 2023) are the first students here at JSRACS to work towards a Certificate IV in Live Production and Technical Services through The Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), a globally recognised Performing Arts Institution. 


Starting in Year 11, both students had the opportunity to work with director Christopher Horsey at Tivoli Theatre on the iconic musical ‘Newsies Jr.’, which is inspired by the real-life Newsboys Strike of 1899. If you’re interested in seeing the show, tickets can be bought through the Fringe World website for February 10, 11, 17 and 18 or you can click here
