RMIT Folio Presentation

We were lucky enough to have RMIT come out to the school on Tuesday 23 April to speak with all students completing a folio subject and to give them information about the requirements and selection tasks that would need to be completed if applying for a university subject that has a folio presentation as a selection task.

We had over 50 students receive some insightful information as well as some great tips to make each student's folio stand out from the others.

We can’t thank the Design team at RMIT enough.

NDIS Information Night

This informative evening was held 23 April and featured presentations and discussions led by experts in the field, covering topics such as:

  1. Overview of the NDIS
  2. Understanding eligibility Criteria and application process.
  3. How the NDIS can support students within our school environment with programs like SLES.

The Brotherhood of St Lawerence, Uniting, JobCo, APM as well as “The funky Farm” attended the evening and chatted about the services they offer.

This event presented a valuable opportunity for all to enhance their understanding of NDIS and explore how we can better support our students to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

Please contact the school if you would like to receive any further information on these topics.
