Soldiers for a Day

Some of our Townsville Stars spent a day as Army recruits recently, learning bush survival and fire-fighting skills, and living the whole day on their issued ration packs.

This activity was part of the Education, Training and Employment pillar of the Stars Plan, which focuses on supporting young women to explore potential career pathways.

Spending the day with 10th Force Support Battalion at Lavarack Barracks gave our students a taste of what it would be like if they joined the Defence Force after completing Year 12.

Defence Force Recruiting spoke with the girls about the many exciting career opportunities available in the Army and made a special presentation to each student as a memory of the day.

Some of our students have expressed an interest in a career in Defence after this amazing experience.

A big thank you to Defence Work Experience and 10th Force Support Battalion for hosting such a wonderful day!
