On Wednesday June 19th, the College is hosting a Work Futures Expo from 5pm to 9pm. It is modelled on the research of the Foundation for Young Australians- “New Work Mindset” which identifies 7 key job clusters that will provide young people with the skills that are essential in defining future occupations.

The program has been coordinated by our Heritage and Alumni group with the support of the Bendigo Bank Foundation and includes a broad range of organisations and keynote speakers who will be presenting. Please view the attached flyer for further details. 

 

All students from years 9 to 12 are encouraged to attend and participate. In particular Year 10 students should prioritise this event as part of their work experience schedule.

In order to assist with the organisation of the Expo please register via the TryBooking link: www.trybooking.com/BAVMG

 

In just over a fortnight over 120 Year 10 students are venturing on the annual Trek to Central Australia and the Top End. The middle school team led by Ms Krisi Friedli have done a superb job in preparing students for this trip. In a busy time for our Year 10 cohort, work experience preparations are now almost finalised. The careers team have assisted Ms Sharlene Hetherington in coordinating placements for over 260 students.

 

Next Wednesday June 12th the annual GAT test will be held for all students undertaking a Unit 3 and 4 VCE study. There are no scheduled VCE classes on this day and students will then be stepping into unit 2 and 4 studies, for the remainder of the year.
