Are you children involved in a VET program?
If your child is studying in a VET program it is imperative that you have registered for your Unique Student Identifier so that all achievements are recorded. The USI links you to an online account that contains all your training records. All information can be found via: www.usi.gov.au
We felt that it would be appropriate timing to remind families of some useful resources relating to mental health and domestic violence issues.
Generation next has a brilliant article on teaching our boys to respect women: www.generationnext.com.au/2015/11/teaching-our-boys-to-respect-women
Rosie Batty’s talk on domestic violence from a Generation Next seminar last year, can be found here: www.generationnext.com.au/resources/media

Are you considering taking a year off between school and university?
If so, Broomwood Hall in London may be just the place for you. Since 2003 over 100 students from Canberra have been placed at Broomwood Hall as teachers’ assistants. In January 2016, eight students from Canberra jetted off to London to start their gap year adventure.
Broomwood Hall is a preparatory day school located in Clapham in Central London. The school is spread over 4 campuses and caters for students aged from 3 years to 14 years. Gap students are employed on contract for 12 months as Teachers’ Assistants to work with the younger children aged 3 – 8 years. As the School does not have boarding facilities, the students usually stay with local families paying a nominal amount per week in board. To be eligible for a position you must be 18 by 1 January 2017.
