Every year since the inception of the Australian Vocational Student Prize in 2005, every student we have nominated has won one of these awards (two per year in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 – and four in 2009, 2010 and again in 2011, now that we are finally allowed four nominations!). And twice our students have taken out the Prime Minister’s Award for Victoria!
Thanks to all the VET staff at Sandringham – and to ATEP & 26P – for again making Sandringham College a great place to do VET!
