What is on – Week 11
PARTIAL LIBRARY CLOSURE TUESDAY 10–WEDNESDAY 11 OCTOBER
Gungahlin College will be hosting the Second Sitting of the AST for Canberra’s northside colleges from Tuesday 10–Wednesday 11 October, and parts of the library will be closed as a result.
The College end of the library (upstairs) and the Library Conference Rooms downstairs (L0.14A and L0.16) will be closed to all students on Tuesday from 8.30am–3.30pm and Wednesday from 8.30am–12.30pm.
All classes normally scheduled in these spaces will move to other locations around the school.
We ask that students use other entrances to the school and avoid walking past or congregating around the Library Conference Rooms in order to minimise noise disturbance.
The public section of the library will remain open as normal. Please see the teacher on duty in the public section of the library if you wish to borrow, require Study Support or have any questions.
CAREERS OPENING ON WEDNESDAY EVENINGS
The Careers office is now open from 4.00–7.45pm on the first Wednesday of each month. The next evening is the first week of Term 4, Wednesday 11 October.
Parents are welcome to make a booking with the Careers Advisers on a Wednesday evening by calling 6142 1101, or via the online booking system. Parents are welcome to use their own email address and name, just include your child’s name in the enquiry so that we can make the links.
