Olympian Eleanor Patterson talks to our students about Resilience and Fostering a Positive Mindset

A number of past students and community members are being interviewed as a part of our Respectful Relationships Program at the College regarding what respect means to them and how vital it is within our community and personal lives. Earlier this year students were fortunate enough to hear an online address from former LSC student and Essendon Football Club Captain, Dyson Heppell and local singing sensation and participant on The Voice, Janie Gordan. We also heard from South Gippsland Shire’s CEO Kerryn Ellis addressing our students around what respect means to her as a prominent figure in our area and why she sees respect as a vital part of our community.

This week we were fortunate to have Olympian Eleanor Patterson addressing our students around how she draws on her resilience and positive mindset to stay focused on her Olympic goals. Eleanor’s messages are very thought provoking and highlight the importance of being resilient and keeping a positive outlook during these uncertain times. Hamish Box kindly recorded the interview so that we can share it with our school community. Please see the attached link below. 

Leongatha Secondary College is a leading Respectful Relationships school and all students in Years 7-9 study Respectful Relationships as part of their everyday curriculum and all students at the college participate in a number of events and forums focusing on respect, resilience, and positive wellbeing. 

Leongatha Secondary College aims to be an influential voice in the school and wider community that can promote gender equality and respectful relationships.
