Colin Buchanan Live!

Colin Buchanan is coming back to Strathalbyn Christian College to kick off our 40th Anniversary Year with an action, packed performance for one night only.

For some of us we might remember Colin Buchanan on ABC’s Play School, or maybe it was his role as Presenter in various Channel 7 prime time shows like “Australia’s strangest home improvements” but I think most people would know Colin as a singer songwriter for Christian Children’s music. (http://colinbuchanan.com.au/about)

Colin Buchanan has become a household name when it comes to Christian Children’s music and I am sure his albums have been played on countless family road trips, Sunday schools and classrooms around Australia.

Colin’s performance is action packed with many different characters and lot of energy.

This performance would not be possible without the support of our wonderful sponsors, Turtle Cove Early Learning Centre, Ocean Air Custom Airconditioning Solutions and Centro Dental.

Tickets are on sale now!

Details:

Thursday 21 March @ 6.30pm Strathalbyn Christian College Hall

Tickets $11 each (children under 2 free) Tickets can be purchased online at www.trybooking.com/BAUAB

Central Regional TAFE (CRTAFE) are getting ready to welcome an influx of potential students at their annual Enrolment Day events.

Each year CRTAFE looks forward showing the community what their local TAFE has to offer and the Enrolment Days are a way for them to find all the information they need in one place.

Experienced staff and lecturers will be on hand to speak to prospective students and discuss the best training options for their needs. Those attending can also tour the campus and view the modern facilities.

Both current and previous students have said the best part of the Enrolment Days is the valuable time spent with staff who assist students in finding the best courses and pathways to suit their interests, availability and lifestyle.

CRTAFE Managing Director Bill Swetman said there is something to suit everyone at TAFE and encouraged anyone thinking about training to come and explore their options.

“From those who have recently completed high school, to those looking for a career change, a promotion at their current workplace or perhaps anyone just wanting to improve their current skills, studying at TAFE can help you get to where you want to be” Mr Swetman said.

“We aim to make the enrolment process hassle free and accessible to all, and this year we also have the added advantage of having the Jobs and Skills Centres on campus which will provide an additional service for the community to speak to staff about employment and career advice” he said.

“We offer flexible training options, a large variety of qualifications, and state-of-art facilities right here in the central regions of WA and we want everyone to come and see what is available at their local TAFE” he said.

Potential students can choose from a Certificate I to Advanced Diploma, apprenticeships, traineeships and short courses. CRTAFE also offers payment plans, University Pathways and has several student support services available.
