I’ve been trying to remember what we had in school (it was that long ago) that was like that. We had a thing called a “Negotiated Study” but that was more english oriented than an actual project of anything. A passion project would have been pretty cool.

What year level? I’d rather a study period so I could go to the mall.

Used to rule when you had a study period before lunch. 2 hours off.

In college they were just called frees - they didn’t even expect us to study! Our negotiated studies were a major component of our year 10.

Doesn’t look to different to a typical Tele article, to be honest.

Also, the scammers aren’t up to date with the Today news. :laughing:

Quit my job yesterday morning, was a while coming now. Not going to stay in a workplace that delivers me rubbish pay, Harassment and bullying and then i get the blame for it when reporting it. Thought it would be a great feeling, Oh how wrong i was felt intimidated, sworn in the face told i had 3 days to change my mind. Despicable, I think if you’ve had 8 employees (Inc myself) walk out in the past 6 weeks i would be worried and to pick up that it’s a toxic workplace.

Sorry to hear that, that’s not good at all.

Hope you get a much better one soon.

When you’ve calmed down and have a little perspective you should consider writing a formal letter to your boss’s superiors detailing your experience. Don’t be vindictive, don’t embellish. Just detail what has happened in a calm and measured manner. Even if the person who deals with it chooses to dismiss it, you’ll feel better about yourself knowing they have a record of what is happening in that workplace.

I did something similar years ago. Walked out on a job I’d been in for years because the environment was toxic and it was effecting my health. I really couldn’t afford to be without work at the time but it was the best thing I ever did. Wrote a letter to head office. They investigated, noted the attrition rate and realised they’d lost an effective employee with a history of excellent KPIs. Received a call from corporate and had a pleasant chat with someone who took the matter seriously and offered me a place elsewhere in the business. I declined and ended up working for a direct competitor.

Saw my immediate manager from toxic workplace in a shopping centre months later who ranted and raved about what I’d done. His partner had to drag him away. I’m guessing things didn’t work out too well for him.
