Just Winging It


Shonet joined us in 2005 at BHCS and left in Year 10 to complete VCE at Upwey High School. Initially when she finished school, Shonet completed a course in Hotel Management, but soon realised that this wasn’t the job for her. Currently, she is a Training Co-ordinator for First National Real Estate. She organises the training sessions for all of the First National Real Estates in Australia so that they can expand their skills and knowledge in the industry. This includes organising trainers, venues, catering, diary management, and promoting the training sessions to each of the offices.

Flashback to 1999
