Meet Selwyn, Victorian Koorie of the Year

After graduating from Mooroopna Secondary College, Selwyn Lui enrolled in a Certificate IV in Community Services at GOTAFE’s Academy of Sport, Health and Education (ASHE) Koorie campus. Selwyn was nominated for Victorian Koorie of the Year for the Victorian Training Awards and continues to help students as a Teacher Support Worker.

Selwyn, Victorian Koorie of the Year student
"I didn’t think I would ever have the skills to study community services. Studying with GOTAFE and being recognised as ASHE’s Cert IV Student of the Year gave me the encouragement and determination to keep learning and for the first time really value the importance of education."
