work HARD
For many of our readers, there are still a few more weeks before the semester starts again. AFIS encourages all of you to make good use of the remaining holidays, and have listed some events to keep you busy! If you're looking to kick back and relax, have a blast at the Game Masters Exhibition! If games aren't your thing, visit Ginky's online store, or drop by Docklands for winter fireworks. For those who like to stay on the move, take a stroll for Open House Melbourne, or book a spot in The Age Run. A holiday from formal education doesn't mean you have to stop learning. Take a trip to Brunswick for the Moreland City Council's Human Rights Forum, or get a head start on work with the Herald Sun Career Expo. Lovers of culture and the arts will be delighted by the upcoming Rare Book Week and Art Fair. So work and play hard this holiday, and we'll see you in our August issue. All the best with the upcoming semester!
