Our VCAL students had the pleasure of participating in the latest KANGAN Experience Day. We were able to pick from a large number of trades to try out and had a very positive experience of being a TAFE student for the day. It was very hands on and we were given the opportunity to make a number of things and question the lovely staff about the courses that KANGAN offer.
To celebrate World Environment Day the Community Environment Group visited VINC and picked out a range of shade loving shrubs and grasses to beautify the front of the school.
We moved in new soil, planted the indigenous tube stock, cut back trees, pulled out dead trees, cut back the hedge, mulched and watered everything in. It was a very busy and successful afternoon.
