These are primarily aimed at Year 11s / school leavers and happen in October/November each year. They provide an opportunity to visit our three campuses, see our facilities and chat to teachers and current students about what our courses involve and what student life is like. College support staff are on hand for advice on careers, transport and finance and there are presentations from the principal. Classrooms and workshops have demonstrations and you’ll be able to visit other areas including our learning resource centres, social spaces and cafes.
