Order of Australia Association’s Schools Major Project

The Order of Australia Association

Monterey Secondary The Order of Australia AssociationCollege has been awarded the prestigious Order of Australia Association, Mornington Peninsula region’s School Major Project Award for 2017.

The award was given to Monterey for our VCAL Connect program, which was considered by the Committee to be “particularly meritorious; involving the College and students in a program that continues to build on existing and new networks”. The award recognises the hard work undertaken by the teachers and students to build the program which was introduced in 2015.

This is the second year Monterey has won the award for the VCAL Connect program, which helps students to build their skills and networks in one of two streams – VCAL Sport Connect, where students work closely with sporting codes such as the AFL, NRL and FFV, and VCAL Industry Connect, where students partner with connections across a number of industries, including manufacturing, constructions, medical and technology.
