On Wednesday 19 May, 32 of our Year 12 students experienced a Murdoch University Campus Tour and Workshop Day as part of their Murdoch Flexi-Track Pathway Classes here at the College. This academic pathway is offered in partnership with Murdoch University and enables our students to complete this university-endorsed course as one of their six Year 12 subjects. The aim of the day was to take in information from the presentations and reflect on individual skills and interests to help decide pathways for future study options and course offerings.
