Great Feedback

on Wednesday, 24 August 2016.

Check out our amazing feedback from one of our Volunteers, Dearna Clune. It is wonderful to receive such positive and pleasing comments.

Dear Sally,

I have two compliments for staff and students:

1. Each Tuesday when I come in to volunteer I see many students. If there is a student standing near the office door, I don't need to open it, it is always opened for me. Students always respond when I say, "Thank you." Further to that, all around the school students smile, say hello and are everything that people believe teenagers are not. To an outsider Wallan Secondary College is full of courteous teenagers.

2. I have been watching with interest the garden project take shape each week. I was delighted to see the gabion seating that the students had installed this week. It looks absolutely FANTASTIC! When I left today, a student was shovelling gravel and he looked up. I complimented him on how great the area looked and he beamed at me and said, "Thanks Miss!" Please pass onto all involved that the concept and the work completed is a credit to them, of which they should be very proud.

Kind Regards, Dearna Clune
