ENDEAVOUR MOBILITY GRANT - PHILIPPINES
The Commonwealth Government through its Endeavour Mobility Grant Initiative has provided short-term grant for five of our local hairdressing students to undertake study in the Philippines.
The mobility grant students, who have just returned from Manila, assisted experienced hairdressing teacher, Ms Denise Xidias and Hair Aid leading hairdressers to teach locals who live on the streets in Quezon City to cut hair so they could earn a living of their new skills.
The overseas experience has exposed our students to people from different cultural, allowed them to gain valuable working experience and leadership skills that will enhance their studies.
The experience has also given the students the opportunity to meet incredible people along the way.
