True Foods hosts Maryborough Education Centre and Highview Community College

Date: Monday 28th August – Friday 1st September

Host: True Foods

School: Combined students from Highview Community College and Maryborough Education Centre

Facilitators: Shane Bicknell and Cameron Geddes

The combined student group were asked to investigate the advantages, benefits and costs associated with developing  a suitable solution to install an Electrical Power Generation system for the Administration Area at True Foods.

The students said that, “After reviewing the scope and discussions with management our group discovered where True Foods would like to be in 5 years’ time. True Foods response was that they want to be more environmentally friendly, True Foods would like to have less waste production, they would like to offer more jobs. True Foods want to expand facilities and be able to produce their own power on site. True foods would like to have their own brand in 5 years, and they want to be producing more than just wraps, burritos and pizzas with toppings for example.  They would like be spending less money on electricity and have smarter energy use. ”

Wayne Belcher, Career’s Advisor with Maryborough Education Centre said ” Thanks and congratulations on another successful Mindshop program.

I know our students really enjoyed the experience, and it was great to see them “perform” on Friday. All students from all schools acquitted themselves well and should all be proud of their achievements.
