A student experience: Danielle Rowland

"I am a born and bred Byron Shire teenager who was eager to continue educating myself. However, I was not only reluctant to leave our beautiful environment for further education, it was financially an impossibility. Fortunately, Byron Community College provided a most rewarding option. I have always loved children and believed they deserve nurturing to develop into all that they can be. Studying the Certificate III in Children Services has given me the skills and knowledge to implement this belief. I feel very privileged to have shared the company of fellow friendly students and be guided by a caring, and highly educated teacher.

I would fully recommend this course to everyone intending to work in child care or for anyone becoming a parent.
