School Leavers' Guide Available Now...Online

1 September, 2000

Dr Michael Wooldridge, Federal Member for Casey, today released online the 2000 version of the School Leavers' Guide.

"I've released the online version two weeks before the paper version in recognition of the significant role information technology and the Internet play in the lives of young people.

"I wrote to local schools two weeks ago to let them know that their students could access the Guide on my website from 1 September," Dr Wooldridge said.

The guide is a resource to the many services available for young people leaving school and includes links to employment, training, TAFE colleges, universities and financial assistance.

Dr Wooldridge said he has produced the guide to help young people find the many benefits, support and advice available to them.

"It is often very confusing for parents and students leaving school to know just what to do and where to go for help and hopefully this booklet will be of great assistance.

"I would like to send a special message of appreciation to all parents who know only too well the strain some students feel during this period of their schooling. It is parents who provide support and encouragement throughout this period.

"I also congratulate the schools and all the dedicated and committed teachers who have been preparing students for these exams," Dr Wooldridge said.

School Leavers' Information Guides can be obtained through Dr Wooldridge's website or by calling his office on 9724 9222.
