Despite a very hot bus trip, our first industry bus tour was an illuminating adventure. We got to have a behind the scenes look at the Northern Hospital and the Austin Hospital. These institutions are very much part of the fabric of the North of Melbourne and part of the future industry focus of our Tech School. Some reflections of the day included a better understanding of the implications of growth in our area. Did you know @ 4000 babies are born annually at the Northern Hospital alone? Also the importance of technology and engineering were highlighted and were visible whether it was in radiology or the simulation training suites. In all it was a whirlwind tour that only scratched the surface of what happens behind the scenes, but certainly gave all those involved an increased sense of the importance of these fields in the futures of our students in life and for work.
