Feedback from YES 2015

"The stalls and workshops were excellent, the presenters were all really engaging and the boys loved all the freebies!! The atmosphere was really relaxed, but still very organised. They great thing about it was the students were learning while having fun and there was so much choice. Count us in for next year." (Epping Boys High School)
