Having just spent my week of work experience here at Focus on Family I feel I’ve learned a lot about the company. I’ve learned how things are organised and planned, witnessed all the preparation for the classes and even been able to attend some myself. I’ve also meet all the staff and volunteers and got to get to know them and all about the separate jobs they do within the business. You’d be surprised to see how much time and effort is actually put into the organising and planning behind Focus on Family, and how many people are in the background in order to keep it up and running. Now after my week here I have a much greater appreciation for all the work that these people put into enriching our community and giving us the opportunity to enrich our own skills. I would advise anyone who has the opportunity to come down and attend an ICT course to maximize their skills or even just come down to focus on crafts for a chat and a cup of tea while learning how to crochet or do calligraphy!
