The College is offering two sessions – Wednesday 26 April is focused on Years Levels 6 – 10 and this session, Thursday 27 April, is focused on Early Learning – Year 5 students. Parents should not need to come to both sessions. Ideally attend the age group session of your eldest child or the one with whom you are having most current challenges.
