Courtney Waugh's Senior Achievement Award

It is with much pleasure that I can announce that Courtney Waugh, class of 2019, was awarded the state winner of the Senior Achievement Awards, 'Excellence in the Category of Work Related Skills (Senior)'.

Due to the current situation the awards ceremony was conducted online, however it was so lovely to watch the acknowledgement of Courtney's outstanding achievement. She spoke so eloquently, thanking the staff, and the College for supporting her through her secondary schooling education.

Courtney developed a business plan in her Senior WRS class, under the guidance of John Clatworthy and supported by the Senior VCAL teachers, in designing and constructing custom made pet feeding bowls. Her business 'Evergreen Furniture Creations' which she started in Year 12, is her current focus and she has such quality workmanship and an eye for detail.

Thank you to the VCAL staff for their innovation, support and commitment to delivering a high quality VCAL program for all of our students. Thank you to the College for enabling us to deliver such a program and of course thank you to all of you for supporting our students throughout their schooling.

I hope you are healthy and coping well with remote learning!

Warm regards,

Kirsty Allan VCAL Coordinator
