Successful turnout for open day

ABOUT 20 people toured facilities and spoke to teachers at Glendyne Education and Training Centre’s open day yesterday.

Principal Dale Hansen said the turnout was better than last year and he expected about four or five new students to enrol.

He said the centre, which was also a support agency for pupils experiencing difficulties outside education, still had room for another 20 students.

Mr Hansen said parents with students aged from 13 to 17 who were not doing well at a mainstream school could contact Glendyne.

He said hands-on learning in areas such as metalwork, woodwork, hospitality and agriculture and workplace programs were integrated with literacy and numeracy studies.
