Taking pride in her traineeship

Described as “fabulous” by clients and staff, Hayley loves getting involved with the magic of creation in the pottery room as part of Minda’s Day Options program

The Reynella East High School student is currently in the final stages of a two-year, school-based traineeship as well as her CHC33015 Certificate III Individual Support (Disability) through Minda’s SA Learning Centre (RTO code 4881).

While Hayley, 16, is looking at pursuing TAFE studies as an Enrolled Nurse she hopes to one day soon find herself back amongst the action in the pottery room of the Lifestyle Precinct.

A talented artist whose stunning works are always snapped up whenever there is a sale, Hayley says she enjoys the process of taking simple clay and helping clients create their art.

“I love working in here, it’s active and there’s so much you can do with the clay, you take it from a basic lump and you can help them create anything,” Hayley says.

“It’s a really great process to be involved in.”

MyPath client Emma describes Hayley as “fabulous” and that she enjoys working with the clay, while staff in the pottery room are full of glowing praise for their young trainee who is “passionate, an excellent extra pair of hands and a brilliant artist”.
