Students to benefit from KIC partnership
The Kwinana Industries Council Education Partnership has again expanded, with Baldivis Secondary College becoming the latest school to join.
The college becomes one of 18 local public and private high schools from the region to partner with KIC and build relationships for the benefit of students and their employment opportunities.
The KIC Education Partnership was established four years ago and promotes a diverse range of career pathways.
KIC director Chris Oughton said he was looking forward to developing a successful relationship with the college.
"We are pleased to have Baldivis Secondary College join our associate high schools in this partnership," he said.
"I have no doubt that the students from Baldivis will have the opportunity to receive first-hand knowledge about careers that are available to them in industry.
"It is all about building a relationship between local students and local industry, so that the next generation is well equipped for the possible career paths that are available to them within WA's premier industrial area."
Baldivis Secondary College Principal Keith Svendsen said the school had always striven to be connected to the community and was continually looking at ways to provide opportunities for young people.
"Establishing a partnership with the KIC is a critical initiative and approach to the college's planning into the future," he said.
"One of the college's key focus areas is on student performance and the partnership with the KIC will assist in providing increased opportunities for our students and staff to further develop their potential.
