In October 2016, Mirboo North Secondary College students had the opportunity to visit Kangan Institute’s Automotive Centre of Excellence at Docklands and Textile Department in Richmond. This was an important part of their VET studies and students participated in visual merchandising activities and toured the facilities. It was a great day out for students who gained some real life hands on experience.
