South East Open Day
20 November, 2017
The VSL South East, for the first time, held an Open Day across all campuses and classes. It created a real 'buzz' filled with great activities and engaging projects! Apart from allowing a taste of our classes and services to parents and friends and the wider community, another objective was to create activities that were student led but also gave parents the opportunity to 'teach' students about their culture and experience (e.g. games). This led to a huge range of events such as the inter-facultative Hindi-Kannada concert at Dandenong, a whole school concert (Berwick) or student led tours through classes and their learning projects (Hampton Park) The feedback from teachers and parents was really positive and encouraging. As the Area Manager I would like to extend my gratitude to all staff, all students, parents and visitors as it takes a concerted effort to make these things a success. We would also like to thank the staff of Dandenong library who came to join us, visiting all our classes and advertising their services with an information stand. Please pencil in November 17th 2018 as the next Open Day in the South East! Holger Nord.

Hungarian Graduation Concert
16 November, 2017
Like every year, the Hungarian faculty concluded its VCE class with a beautiful display of poetry and drama at Dandenong High School, involving all classes and year levels. Not only well attended by parents and friends, it was also honoured by the visit of the Consul General of Hungary Peter Bakonyi. His annual visits demonstrate great support for the teaching and learning of Hungarian language (and culture) but bringing his own family to these occasions emphasise more than professional support but also a personal involvement! A successful event organised by Mrs Eva Bartha and Mrs Agnes Korlaki, our long serving teachers of Hungarian @ VSL SouthEast - thank you!

Polish Graduation Ball – swietna noc !!!
16 November, 2017
On Saturday 11th of November the annual Polish Graduation Ball took place at the The Grand on Princes. Up to 200 guests attended this formal ball, families, friends and many VIPs, among them the principal leadership team of the VSL. YR12 teacher Bozena Kalinowska joined the enthusiastic groups of graduates in their Polish Polonaise (see photos). The evening then transformed into a beautiful and relaxed celebration with good music and many people on the dance floor! A great opportunity for the VSL community in the south east to enjoy the achievements and each other’s company! We sincerely hope to repeat this event in 2018! The festivities “continued” the following day with a grand spectacle on Federation Square, marking the celebration of Polish culture and impact on Australian life! Thanks to our passionate and enthusiastic teachers/supervising staff of Dandenong South East: Mrs. Elizabeth Kiernikowski, Mrs Ewa Kizewski, Mrs. Bozena Kalinowska and Mrs Lidia Kruszka (see photos), VSL South East provided information about the VSL and its program and were busy answering queries in regard to learning Polish and other languages, how our programs are organised etc. Thank you to all who contributed - it was certainly a busy day, showing that the VSL is important for each community, supporting its interest to maintain its level of cultural engagement in their native language!
