IT’S been a positive start to 2019 at Leongatha Secondary College, with 124 Year 7 students and new enrolments across all year levels.

“Due to the growth of numbers this year, we have six Year 7 classes, one more than last year,” principal Wayne Chester said.

“This year is an exciting year for Leongatha Secondary College, with new enrolments in every year level.”

New teaching staff include Craig McCaughan as teacher/learning coach, Denita McMillan as English teacher/teaching and learning leader, arts teacher and PLT leader Karyn Haig, humanities teacher Laurie Bier and Kayla Redpath, outdoor education/sport and recreation trainee.

Two new education support staff members are business manager Kim Cross and Kate Kuhne, college operations assistant.

The first event on the school calendar is the annual College Swimming Sports at the Korumburra Swimming Pool today (Tuesday).

School photographs will be taken tomorrow (Wednesday).

Year 7 students will have the opportunity to get to know their peers and teachers, develop self-confidence, trust, problem solving and team work skills, whilst having fun at the three day Beach Adventure Camp from February 13 to 15.

The following week, the first group of Year 8s will head off for their hiking camp at Nayook Campus, in the Warburton area.

This camp gives students the opportunity to learn a number of skills related to camping and will be part of their physical education unit. Students will take part in two days of hiking, a day of water activities and community enhancement activities.
