The girls of Berkeley Vale Campus have enjoyed the experience and look forward to completing a new topic next year.”

“All students I have spoken to said how much they enjoyed the program. They even came and found me to tell me how good it was. Several students have indicated that they wish to continue with the program during the holidays. This is an excellent way to promote self esteem in 14 and 15 year olds.” - Gaye, Careers Advisor.

Toukley Junior Guides
“From learning how to sit properly to setting the table for our next dinner party, Toukley Junior Guides enjoyed every moment of our etiquette workshop. There were giggles as we introduced ourselves to our facilitator and answered imaginary phone calls but because it was a fun evening, we remember what we were taught and have become 'little ladies'..” - Erica.
