On Thursday / Friday last week Jenny O’Bree and Jo Darvill attended the National Beacon Conference in Melbourne. Yarram Secondary College was nominated for 3 National Awards, Best 1st Year School, Best Leadership Team and Best Cluster.
We were successful in winning the best cluster nomination, we were nominated for this category by our area manager as our cluster which includes ourselves along with Leongatha, Warragul, Trafalgar, Traralgon & Maffra were successful in obtaining a grant to help us kick the program off without relying on the college or our business partners for more than their time originally to showcase the importance of the program.
As we progress we will be receptive to offers of sponsorship in monetary or in kind from our business community to help get your future employees job ready for them to take their position in the community.
We thank our business partners for their contribution to date and hopefully we can continue to grow these kids together and challenge for future awards to highlight this very worthwhile project.
