Keep Early Childhood Diplomas at Holmesglen Moorabbin

This petition had 85 supporters

The Holmesglen's Early Childhood Department has decided to cancel the classes for every student who is enrolled in a Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care at Holmesglen's Moorabbin Campus. This was a complete shock to these students, who are mid way through the course, and had no notice that the department was even considering this closure.

Many of the students live locally in the area which means a majority of their employment are in the surrounding areas and catch public transport to the campus. These students are now forced to change campuses with the two options taking a little over an hour's worth of travel time by public transport. This means less time for a student to work and will cause students having to make the scary decision between choosing to attend class or being able to eat for a week. This is stress that a student doesn't deserve to go through.

The students have pleaded with the department but we're being ignored and disrespected. The aim of this is to show the department that these classes are in demand for the Moorabbin Campus and they're making a great mistake by cancelling them. Help give the current students an opportunity to finish their course and allow future students to be able to attend the Moorabbin Campus to begin.
