Lucy Wicks, Member for Robertson, and Chris Holstein, Member for Gosford were in attendance to present awards and were inspired by the College students’ hard work.
“Congratulations to the students at Central Coast Community College. It was an honour to be able to present prizes to the outstanding achievers in the Business and Aged Care fields at the Awards night.
There are no limits to what this country can achieve for its people, and these talented young students are leading the way”, Mrs Wicks said.
Chris Holstein presented the Natural Therapies Awards on the night, as well as honouring long standing College students.
“I commend the college on this, its inaugural Graduation Ceremony which I’m sure many students will remember as the start of great new opportunities for their future” Mr Holstein said.
