Western Port Secondary College is a Beacon School and we were very fortunate to host four days of the Beacon Polish program for our Year 10 cohort during 27th – 30th June.
The Polish program is about teaching our young people confidence, transferrable, team and leadership skills, ,etiquette, personal grooming hygiene and interview techniques to gain successful employment. During the 2-3 course lunch students engage in conversation with business guests.
Our Community Bendigo Bank in Hastings sponsored one of our Polish days held in the Hastings Community House.
Students were privileged travel to the CBD and have the Polish program delivered to them at Crown Plaza and SKM both sponsors of Beacon Foundation.
The Pilot and Benelong Foundations sponsored one of our Hastings Polish Program as well.
Overall the students were very positive about the experience on the day and said the skills they learnt would help into future pathways.
