It is the last day of school and Vicki drops a bombshell: she will not be coming back to Angelus High next year. In fact, she is leaving Angelus altogether to go to boarding school. Now her family is back together, Mr Streeton wants what's best for everybody. Lockie wonders how sending Vicki away is good for the family, let alone him. At home, still reeling from Vicki's news, Sarge informs Lockie their family may not be together in time for Christmas Day. While Mum is getting better, she may not be ready to come home just yet.
