Trafalgar High School joined a celebration marking Broadening Horizons Project’s first year in
Warragul recently.

The project aims to develop innovative units of work to link classroom curriculum to the world of work for years seven to nine students.

The celebration, held at the West Gippsland Arts Centre, brought together educators from the seven Gippsland schools and regional directors of local and state organisations.

Trafalgar High School is one of seven Gippsland secondary schools to join the first year of the project. Kurnai College and Korumburra, Maffra, South Gippsland, Traralgon and Yarram secondary colleges have also taken part.

The Broadening Horizons Project is a joint initiative involving the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and RMF in partnership with Beacon Foundation.

It aims to increase the rate of positive outcomes for young people in Gippsland.
