TERM 3 | ISSUE 6
Sunday, 31st July 2016
Message from the CEO
Australian Careers Business College students get a strong educational foundation in the classroom in addition to hands-on learning through Work Placement. Other important aspects of the business world we emphasise are contributing to the larger community and being a responsible corporate citizen who considers the legal, ethical and social aspects of their work.
More and more businesses are looking at the big picture of how their actions impact society. The term ‘corporate social responsibility’ is used to describe the way a business takes into account the financial, environmental and social impacts of its decisions and actions. One way that organisations promote social responsibility is by getting involved to assist with important issues on both local and national levels.
At ACBC we get involved as well. Each year we are proud to support Jeans for Genes Day at all our campuses. On this special day we don the denim to raise valuable funds for the Children’s Medical Research Institute’s fight against childhood genetic diseases. Last year we raised over $6,000 by working with our local communities, collecting donations, hosting morning teas and selling Jeans for Genes merchandise and food items. We look forward to seeing staff, students, trainers and local businesses working together again on Thursday 4 August to support this great cause.
