On Monday 10 October 2022 the College hosted its Annual VCE Art and Media Exhibition. This provided the opportunity for the College community to gather together to celebrate success in VCE Studio Art, Media and Visual Communication Design. Guests were treated to a range of folios, films and bespoke pieces, all of which celebrated the talents and individuality of our students. Many of the pieces from the exhibition remain showcased around the College. We congratulated the VCE students and staff involved in this event.
The College community joined together to celebrate the Graduating Class of 2022 on Friday 14 October 2022.
