Recently a group of 44 Year 10 students visited Central Australia.

Year 11 VET Chinese City Excursion

October 14th, 2019

On 17 September students from the Year 11 VET Chinese class went into the city for an exciting excursion.

We were split into groups of two or three and given a landmark, such as Federation Square, to make a one-minute tour guide, in Chinese of course!

The blended family is the fastest growing family dynamic in the world with one in five families now being a ‘step’ or ‘blended’ family. However, when families “blend,” it rarely progresses smoothly. Some children resist change, and parents become frustrated when the new family doesn’t function in the same way as the previous one.
