4. Intermediate VCAL Excursions 

During the last 2 weeks of the 2019 VCAL program the intermediate students planned, organised and ran three excursions. They did a brilliant job in planning fun and interesting excursion for the class to go on. They had to organise the budget, travel options, risk assessments and activities for the day. The excursions were Strike Bowling & Escapes Rooms, Timezone Competition and lastly Tree Tops Adventure.  All that attended the excursion should be commended on their behaviour and respect to the public as well as their organisation on planning and making sure their event ran smoothly. Well done VCAL students!
