Just wanted to send a quick thank you all for your help, support and guidance throughout my traineeship with Golden West. I have really enjoyed my time working with you guys and gained so much confidence and knowledge over the past 12 months. Although I am sad to leave Golden West, I am looking forward to my opportunity at TAFE and seeing where it takes me.
