We all came away with some valuable tools to help our children make positive career choices and the insight to not sweat the small things if the journey is not as straight forward as we would wish, and we look forward to hosting an event with you in the future. Thank you for coming to Parnell College." - Sally Herbert - Friends of Parnell College
