UPCOMING LOCAL EVENTS
VTAC parent seminar
I am hopeful we will gain in August personnel from VTAC to run an information evening for local parents as they have done in the past. This event has enabled parents to gain an understanding of the application process and support their student at this often ‘stressful’ time. I will inform you all as soon as I receive confirmation of my success in applying for this seminar.
