Who can believe it’s the end of Week 2 of our last term of 2023? This week has seen us continue to celebrate and acknowledge our Year 12 cohort as they finished their final full week of school today before they commence preparing for their final exams. We wish them well as they continue on their journey next year whether it be to further studies or to join the workforce. For those parents who will be finishing with us at 91AV this year along with their Year 12 student, we thank you for giving us the opportunity to be a part of your child’s education.
