Rosella graduates look forward to future

ROSELLA Park School graduates Taylor Christiansen and Siegi Tietz will be proud as punch when they step out of Bernie's Party Bus for their graduation.

The boys will farewell school at Harvey Road Tavern on Friday.

Taylor, 17, can't wait to start his life as an independent man.

"It's exciting, I have been doing school for many, many years," he said.

"I am moving to Victoria to live with my grandparents. I am hoping it will be easy to get a job there."

Taylor has ambitions to work in radio, art or music.

He did work experience at Target this year, an initiative teacher Dominique Colucci was determined to see everyone take up.

"It increases their independence and it helps highlight talents they didn't know they had," she said.

Eighteen-year-old Siegi is more of a hands-on kind of person.

"I am so excited (for graduation) and I am really looking forward to Christmas," he said.

Siegi did his work experience at Woolworths and the Feedbarn.

After school, he will continue working on his family's Calliope property as a farmhand.

"I feed the horses on the farm and mum is getting me a chicken coop," he said.

Bernie's Party Bus is picking each of the graduates and their friends up from their homes.
