Overseas students meet today

All new overseas-bound university students are encouraged to attend an orientation session at 3pm today at Mary Miller Memorial Hall, Red Bay Primary School.

Held annually by the Education Council, this annual pre-departure briefing is for all 2006 Education Council scholarship recipients, as well as all other students leaving for overseas studies for the first time. Parents are also encouraged to attend.

The event offers students an excellent early opportunity to network and find out who else will be attending the same institutions. A register will be taken of students for the local information database, there will be a short programme of speakers from various universities and a speaker will discuss US visa requirements for students.

For more information call the Education Council at the Department of Employment Relations on 945-3114, and ask for Heidi or Sherine.
