GEALC .... Celebrating 30 Years!!
GEALC first opened its doors in 1986 so this year we are celebrating 30 years of being a part of the community. Our celebrations kicked off with a successful Multicultural Lunch on 16 March! Our students showcased recipes from our new cookbook entitled ‘Tastes That Take Us Home”.  See below for more information!

Medical Reception Program ... takes off!
Our new Medical Reception course is proving to be a great success! The first course (MR1) started in April  with 11 participants. These students are currently completing MR2 and will then learn how to use the medical reception software, PRACSoft. 

One student has already found a job and the other students have commented on how much they are enjoying this course.  There's a lot to learn, but Kerrie, the tutor, is guiding everyone through the medical terminology, step by step!

A new MR1 program commenced on 21 July with 11 students again!  This is a wonderful opportunity to find casual work in the medical industry. So if you are interested in learning this program - you better get in quick. We are already taking enrolments for Term 4!
