Orientation day success

APPROXIMATELY 300 Kingscliff TAFE students gathered at the campus yesterday for a special orientation lunch.

Campus manager Fran O’Hara said the event gave students the opportunity to find out about support and recreation services on the campus and in the local community.

“It was fantastic.

"All the students and teachers really enjoyed the barbecue and there were plenty of vendors for students to source information and advice,” she said.

The 13 vendors on hand to field student inquiries included Nortec Youth Services, St Josephs Youth Services, Northern Rivers Family Day Care, Westpac Kingscliff, Co-op Book- shops, Centrelink, Northern Rivers Community Legal Centre, Caldera Kayaking Experience, Destination Tweed and Tweed Heads PCYC.

Student Rafael Hernande Salamanca said he was impressed with what TAFE had to offer.

“It was great meeting other students from other sections, and I got a lot of good information too,” he said.

“I didn’t realise how much help was available to students and it was fantastic that I could get all this info during my lunch break.”

Ms O’Hara said the campus had received impressive enrolments for the first semester.

“Nearly all of our courses are full.

"It is great to see people turning to TAFE for their education options.”
