Yesterday was Nelson's last day of school.
Here he is on his first day.
Nelson has completed his VCAL (Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning) and will commence an apprenticeship in roof plumbing in the new year. As part of his VCAL, Nelson had to do one day a week work experience in the field he wanted to work in, which was plumbing. He asked a friend's dad who said yes straight away but told Nelson he was a roof plumber. Nelson decided to give it a try and loved it.
Mick was so impressed that he offered Nelson an apprenticeship at the end of term 3 for this year! After discussions with school, we decided Nelson would do Year 11 this year but undertake the senior VCAL work (Year 12). He worked very hard this year and has successfully
fulfilled all requirements for his certificate.
After 17 years of driving up and down Yan Yean Road and waiting in the car park for the boys, my school run days
are over. It's a little sad but I'm sure I'll find ways to
fill in that extra time I'll now have!
I joined Wendy and the girls for Friday Night Sew-In and worked on my Gail Pan stitchery. Not much left to go now!
