Work experience for secondary school students has returned to Grampians Health – Horsham, Dimboola and Edenhope after a three-year COVID-enforced hiatus.

The reintroduction of the work experience program is aimed at Year 10 students and includes specialised programs for Year 11 and 12 students.

“Year 10 students can apply to complete an organised work experience program of up to one-week duration,” Mr Vague said.
