OSCAR Term 3 Plan from Sept 6th
5 Jul 2021
Near the end of term 2 we wished Shelly well as she went on maternity leave and welcomed Hannah Donald on as the new OSCAR coordinator. In her spare time Hannah loves to take her dog out for walks, bake and hang out with her friends. She is passionate about helping young people discover their full potential in life and loves the opportunity to learn and grow from new experiences herself. We hope Hannah enjoys her time as OSCAR coordinator.
