Students receive jail insight
KEPNOCK State High School received a visit from Maryborough Correction Centre officers yesterday.
Year 11 criminal law students received an interactive talk which explained the ins and outs of living in prison.
The officers spoke about life in jail, uniforms that must be worn and the $2 to $3 a day wage prisoners could earn.
Teacher Tony Canniffee said the talk had been valuable for students.
“It just gives them more specific, detailed information and real officer experiences,” he said.
Maryborough Correction Centre education officer Felicity Murray said it had been great to talk to the students.
“It's important people see what it's like in the corrections centre without going out to the centre,” she said.
