Welcome to The Centre

Where Are They Now

Where Are They Now is a video series about our past students to find out what they are doing now since completing thier studies at The Centre.

We have some fantastic success stories we want to share with the community.

Greta Westra

Greta came to The Centre as an adult wanting to improve her reading and writing. She left school early and hadn’t been in education for quite some time.

She is not alone, many adults wanting to finish school come to The Centre to make the first step in growing as a person and steping up to further education.

During her studies here at The Centre she completed General Education for Adults then went on to compelte her VCAL, a Senior Secondary Qualification.

Greta is now studying her Diploma of Counselling.

Greta acomplished so much during her time here and she continues to achieve amazing things, you can watch her story in our video series “Where are they now?”

Greta was the 2016 Anne Pennington Award recipient.

Congratulations Greta, from The Centre
