Our Step Up program for 2017 is about to start and we look forward to welcoming all our students for a taste of their new classes.

We also have parent information sessions in the Ulumbarra Theatre next Monday and Tuesday evenings for those who are new to the college.

New students for 2017 will have access to many new facilities which have been opened over the past year.  The Ulumbarra complex features state-of-the-art Drama, Dance, Music and Hospitality facilities, while students now have a one-stop-shop for all key student services.  The Wellbeing, Careers, Work-placement and MIPs staff as well as Student Coordinators are now centrally co-located in our new Student Services Centre. I’m sure students are going to enjoy learning in and using those new spaces.

The Step Up program is a great opportunity for students to understand the requirements of the subjects they’ll be studying in 2017. I encourage students to dedicate some time to their studies over the coming school holiday period so that they begin the year full of confidence. This is important for all students, particularly those who are entering Year 12.

I look forward to welcoming our new students and their families to our college for the 2017 school year.
