University visit with Lauren Shivvaan. Lauren teaches Foundation Studies at the University College, which is still part of the Univerity. Foundation studies is a pathway to university for people who did not achieve a sufficient entry score. It is mainly focused on social work but along the way improves the student's literacy capabilities and prepares them for university expectations and life. As a general statistic, 85% of people who undertake the Foundation Studies program go on to study at University. No surprise however that due to Lauren’s dedication and leadership that Whyalla achieves 100%. Our recent Glen Eden Excellence in Mental Health Award winner Melissa Schenck is a graduate of the Program.
 
Principle Trish Richman led us through the building site for the new Secondary College, The building is in its second stage of construction with all of the internal walls completed and the second-fix carpentry under installation. Much planning and thought have gone into the design and layout of the school which is unique. Some areas were well ahead in their completion which gave us a better understanding of how the finished product will look. The layout is unique and not a copy of any other school. Trisha will move in during November and the school is on track for completion and readiness for the start of the 2022 School year. There are photo’s on our Facebook page but none from inside, as that was not allowed.
