What do other students think about Year 10 Head-start to SACE?

I was scared to move from a high school to a college as I didn’t want to leave my friends and the football academy at my old school behind. I knew that moving to Thebarton Senior College in the Head-start to SACE program would be a big decision in my life and I knew deep down that Thebarton Senior College would support my future and career. I am so glad I made that decision now as my teachers are very supportive, helpful with planning my future, helping me pursue my dream career and helping me grow as a person.
