Project Mentor

VCAL Personal Development Students in Year 11 and 12 are participating in a learning activity called Project Mentor.

The task involves asking ten questions to a person at the local level , state/regional level and national/ International level.  We are hoping that the responses will support the students as they work to complete their own projects this year.

The Students generated the questions based on the VCAL learning outcomes and by consensus came up with their top ten.

As our VCAL students continue on their Project Mentor activity we invite you to read about
