South Gippsland Shire CEO Kerryn Ellis talks to our students about Respect
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 term students were fortunate enough to hear an online address from former LSC student and Essendon Football Club Captain, Dyson Heppell and we are also in the process of interviewing local singing sensation and participant on The Voice, Janie Gordan.
This week we are fortunate to have 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. Kerryn’s messages are very thought provoking and highlight the importance of Respect within our local community. Kerryn kindly videoed her interview so that we can share it with our school community. Please see the attached link below.
