Work Experience at Aeon Academy

This Spring Vacation program, as we have many times before, Aeon Academy was delighted to welcome a work experience student into our team.

Callum spent a busy week turning his hand to every job in the centre, from our specialised and foundation programs to helping out in the kitchen, and even assisting Saadia in the office.

As the week drew to a close, we sat him down and asked him about his experience…

Aeon: Who are you?

I’m Callum! I am 16 years old, and attend Alfred Deakin High School. I enjoy playing the guitar and building lego spaceships with my brothers.


Aeon: Why did you choose Aeon Academy for work experience?

I enjoy working with children, and I have great memories of attending Aeon when I was young.


Aeon: Have you worked before?

I participated in work experience at the ANU School of Music.


Aeon: How did things compare to your expectations?

I didn’t know what to expect when coming to Aeon for work experience, and I was very nervous. When I arrived, however, I discovered that there was no reason to be afraid as everyone was friendly and polite and I found it easy to fit in.


Aeon: Anything else you’d like to add?

Working at Aeon has been really fun and I think I have gotten some great skills out of it!


It was a pleasure to have Callum working with us, and we’d have him again any time.

If you’re interested in the idea of doing work experience with Aeon Academy, reach out to our office and get in touch! We’d love to have you.
