We have reached another exciting milestone in the life of our college with enrolments opening today. We have prepared an online form to receive applications which can be accessed here: https://iona.vic.edu.au/enrolment-form/
Feel free to share this with any friends who have students entering year seven in 2020.
For those of you who wish to learn more about Iona before lodging an application, our builders have been working hard to prepare an administration facility where I will be able to meet with families and take them through a virtual tour of the college. This office will be on the Iona site in Horseshoe Bend road and we expect it to be ready for meetings in mid-February. I will provide more information on opportunities to meet with me for a virtual tour ahead of the office opening.
I have been encouraged by the large number of enquiries I have had from families eager to learn more about Iona. I have prepared some answers to the questions I have been receiving which you can see below. We will add these FAQs to our website and add to them as information for questions arise.
Of course, if you have any further questions the College can be contacted on 0427 189 279 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
I would also appreciate your support in spreading the word about Iona. Please share our website (www.iona.vic.edu.au) with anyone you know who is considering secondary school options for their family and encourage them to sign up for new updates.
I look forward to providing you with further updates in coming weeks.
