TAFE Western’s new and returning students studying in Orange have turned out in strong numbers to yesterday’s welcome barbecue.
TAFE Western Counsellor and psychologist Rachael Buckerfield, who helped organise the event with the Orange Student Hub team, said the barbecue gave students the opportunity to get familiar with their surroundings and meet and greet staff and fellow students.
“The Orange College welcome barbecue was a huge success with close to 200 staff and students in attendance,” Mrs Buckerfield said.
“It was great for our new and returning students to get familiar with the college and its facilities and meet all the support services.
“Students were able to meet TAFE Western support staff including counsellors, Aboriginal support officers, student engagement officers and librarians – services which will be important for them throughout their TAFE journey.”
Mrs Buckerfield said those in attendance also got to participate in a drumming circle with Ross Welch from Fun With Drums, with lots of fun had by all trying to find their rhythm.
