January Update

Happy New Year VCE! 
I hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy with all of the wild weather and colds going around. Thank you for your patience with the delayed start to school after the break, it is so great to have the students back with us! Please continue to check our website often for any new information. 
We are excited to announce that Sound Kreations will be in next week to teach our students some dance moves! Stay tuned for a video to come. A big thank you to the PAC for putting this on!
Let's have a great second term!
