It was a great day at the Skillset Awards on Friday, August 31st, 2018 where we were able to recognise our amazing Skillset Senior College Leaders and partners who have made a significant impact to our school.
For the first time at the Skillset Awards, our SSC Senior Leaders were recognised in front of 200 guests at the Flannery Centre.
The Skillset Senior College Senior Leaders are soon to complete their HSC and their commitment is to be commended as it has been no easy feat to stay on track and continue coming to school. This achievement will hold them in good stead for the adventures that lie ahead, both personally and professionally. The Senior Leaders have shown amazing leadership and support to our junior students. Skillset wishes them all the very best for their future and hopes they continue their educational journey. Well done Year 12!
We were very fortunate to also have the Federal Member for Calare, the Hon. Andrew Gee present the students with their certificates.
Skillset Senior College also recognised an individual with whom Skillset Senior College has worked in partnership over the past 12 months to deliver benefits to our school.
The Skillset Education Partnership Award award recipient was Kevin Sheehan for Cows Create Careers Program
We congratulate and commend Kevin, Liz and their family for their ongoing support and generosity toward Skillset Senior College. For the past two years, Kevin has donated dairy cows to our school agriculture program allowing Skillset Senior College to participate in the Cows Create Careers program. Providing assistance to 5 schools within the Bathurst district, Kevin and his family have enabled this exciting program to continue in the region. In turn, introducing students to the dairy industry, teaching them skills in animal handling and the responsibility of managing and raising young dairy cows. We thank you Kevin for your enthusiastic support and generosity.
Congratulations to our Year 12 Students and to Kevin for his contribution to Skillset Senior College!
