Friends of CCG Edition 2
Leadership lessons from our leading ladies
In 2019-20, half of all workers in Australia were women yet not quite one-third held key management positions. But Community College Gippsland is bucking the national trend and leading by example with five of its six senior positions currently occupied by women and half of its Board.
Education support lays the foundations of success
Having worked previously as a therapist and counsellor, and volunteering on Japanese school exchanges, Miyuki Sasaki took a break from employment to raise a family. When she was ready to return to the workforce, she looked for a career choice that would allow her to work during school hours as well as using her expertise.

Students flourish with community seed program
The Friends of the CCG ‘Hands On Herbs’ program is a fresh take on a college-industry partnership and it’s already growing our horticulture student’s confidence and skills. In partnership with commercial grower Freshleaf, herbs are donated to the college, then grown and packaged by our students.
This edition of the Friends of CCG newsletter is made possible with the help of our buddies at Bupa, who provided financial support through the Bupa Foundation Community Grants Program.
