THAT’S a wrap! Ten outstanding Young Leaders from the Glenelg & Southern Grampians Local Learning & Employment Network (GSGLLEN) graduated on Tuesday, October 24 at a ceremony at the Hamilton Golf Club in front of 60 parents, mentors, sponsors and school staff. Participants showcased their new-found public speaking skills and shared their reflections of the experiences of the 2023 Young Leaders program.
Year 10 and 11 students from Monivae College, Good Shepherd College, Baimbridge College and The Hamilton and Alexandra College participated in Young Leaders this year. The program consisted of eight program days and sessions including a MasterChef Challenge, Business Industry Tour, Tour of Australian Blue gum Plantations (ABP) and A day on Country, to name a few.
