  • Last Monday, Wauchope TAFE representatives attended the official opening of TG's Child Care- High St . A huge thank you to owners, Gayle and Trevor Kee, for making us feel welcome and congratulations on your new venture. Well done for creating a fun, safe and interactive place for Wauchope children to start their educational journey. They also signed up two of our trainees last week, so we think that deserves a 'like' too!
