The Board of Governance invites you to participate in this year’s Annual General Meeting
Please see details below.

Guest Speaker – Adrian Twitt OAM

After graduating from the University of Melbourne Adrian taught at secondary schools across Victoria before settling in Wangaratta following his appointment to Wangaratta High School. In 1971 he was appointed Executive Officer for the Wangaratta Centre for Continuing Education. The next three years saw important changes in adult education in Victoria. In 1975 Adrian continued his teaching career which included postings in Canada and Zimbabwe and a return to Wangaratta High School in 1984. He retired from teaching ten years later and took up a position at The Centre, organising many of the community programs from then until retirement in 2001. Adrian was made a Life member of The Centre in 2005. He has been involved in the life of the community of Wangaratta in executive and committee roles in a large variety of organisations over many decades. Adrian was awarded a Federation medal in 2001, and the Medal of the Order of Australia in 2009.

Greta Road VCAL students creating waves on Radio

VCAL students from the Greta Road campus and also from the Chisholm Street campus are learning the ropes at local community radio station 101.3 Oak FM.

Each week, students from Greta Road have been attending Oak FM to host their own segments, discussing topics that are important to them and based around their interests, as well as picking out their own music for the segments- you might be surprised, there’s a few classics in there! One of the students from Caroline’s class in Chisholm Street, Caleb, hosted his own segment to promote their fundraiser Sausage Sizzle coming up on the 19th November for Motor Neurone Disease.
