04/11/2015 – YoungBlue SummerSchool 2016
We’ve had a lot of enquiries about our YoungBlue program in Jan 2016 and we apologise for the late details on our program! Its been a challenge securing a location for the program as the building we usually hold the SummerSchool in at QUT is being knocked down and due to delays the new building will not be ready until February. As soon as we have found a location we will be sure to update you with all the details. We are still hoping the program will go ahead. If you’d like to sign up to our newsletter we will be sure to email you as soon as we have any updates: http://eepurl.com/brMRen
