On Monday the Premier of Western Australia, the Hon Mark McGowan MLA and the Minister for Education, the Hon Sue Ellery MLC visited the College. Their visit was part of the government’s community cabinet program and culminated in the Premier’s weekly press conference which was held under the peppermint tree adjoining our horticulture garden area.
Our guests visited the Trade Training Centre where the Premier met current Year 11 Hospitality students and was given a barista lesson by former student Day. This was followed by time with our Inclusion and Deaf Education students in one of our Horticulture areas where the Premier, the Minister and local member Cassie Rowe planted snow peas whilst the chickens pecked through the garden beds. It was a great opportunity to showcase some of our excellent VET programs and for students to demonstrate knowledge and skills that they had learnt – real life learning was highlighted when one of our Inclusion students informed the Premier in a clear and confident manner that the chickens eat the slater worms in the garden beds and play a very important role in controlling pests.

On Thursday 22nd February Kienan Davis was awarded the Rob Riley Memorial Prize by the Minister of Education & Training, the Hon. Sue Ellery MLC. Kienan received the prize as the top performing Aboriginal VET student in all WA public schools. Kienan was a Yr12 WACE graduate of the College in 2017 and a leading member of the Follow the Dream program throughout his 5 years at BCC.
We couldn’t be prouder of Kienan and have no doubt he will continue to be an inspirational leader as he begins his life as a tertiary student. Keep dreaming big Kienan!
Congratulations to Kienan, his parents, BCC staff and FTD tutors who all played integral roles in helping him achieve this outstanding prize ⭐⭐⭐
