Many aspects of our curriculum relate to foundation, technical & entrepeneurial skills needed in future work and career development. This week in Year 7 Applied Mathematics, students were exposed to the many career opportunities in mathematics and tackle real life Mathematics problems.
For their major project, students were given the challenge to design a water theme park for Salesian college using Algebra, based on a design brief. Today they presented their plans and the Mathematics behind it to Mr Brockhus for approval and answered all of his questions.
Students are to be congratulated for taking up the challenge and for presenting creative maps of their theme parks using complicated mathematics.
All young people need a Tax File Number (TFN) if employed & when accepting an offer at a University or TAFE. Applying for a TFN is easy; students just fill in the online form & then have their identity verified at an Australia Post Office. Click here to apply.
Your tax file number (TFN) is your personal reference number in the tax and super systems. Your TFN is an important part of your tax and super records as well as your identity, & need to be kept secure. TFN is yours for life. You keep the same TFN even if you change your name, change jobs, move interstate or go overseas.
You don't have to have a TFN, but without one you pay more tax. You also won't be able to apply for government benefits, lodge your tax return electronically or get an Australian business number (ABN).
Since 2015, Victorian schools are not able to process them.
