One final Note . . .
As the year closes I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our students and families a joyous Christmas, relaxing break, and Happy New Year in 2017. It is a pleasure being a part of such a great Senior School team led by Mrs Sharron Frame. As Careers Advisor it is always a joy providing course and careers counselling advice to our students. In particular, seeing students’ progress into the next stage of their course and career journey is truly rewarding. To all students, I remind you that the careers office is always open to you including all past students of Oakleigh Grammar.
