If you are a student visa holder, you might be able to work more than 40 hours a fortnight temporarily during term if your employer needs you to stock shelves at a supermarket. This temporary arrangement applies to aged care workers as well.
“To keep up with this demand, supermarkets have told us they need to give extra hours to current staff to stock shelves and serve Australian customers. While many of these will be Australian workers, international students will also be able to increase their hours,” Mr Tudge (Acting Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs) said.

"Student visas can’t be extended. The student will need to apply for a new visa". (Department of Home Affairs website).
