LEAP Higher 2017 - A Great Success!

This fun performance from our theatre-in-schools partner, Gibber, has opened the eyes of over 6,000 Y7 & Y8 students to new possibilities.

Feedback from their teachers has been positive, with many telling us their students will be able to draw on this experience later, when developing their Career Action Plans.

Teacher feedback...

  • "Fantastic, highly relevant, timely, excellent starting point for discussion & to increase aspiration levels. Thank you." [Pathways Coordinator]
  • "Vibrant, exciting, relevant. Thank you." [Assistant Principal]
  • "It was a brilliant introduction to the pathways ahead for our younger students (Years 7&8). We would love to see this workshop embedded in all school programs." [Pathways Coordinator]
  • "Great performers, students very attentive and engaged. Important for rural areas to promote higher education." [Education Support]
