Reengagement Program Student Perspective
The Portland Re-engagement Program is a campus of Portland Secondary College which caters specifically for students who have disengaged or are at risk of doing so from mainstream education.
Students come from all backgrounds and have left mainstream education for a wide range of reasons. What they have in common is a strong desire to improve their chances of success in life and the centre focuses on assisting them to make a positive contribution to their community by transitioning to further education, training or employment.
The South Portland setting is homely, class sizes are small and students and teachers build strong and supportive relationships that foster both social and academic growth and give the students the very best chance of achieving their personal goals.Here, the students tell in their own words what being part of this innovative educational environment has meant to them.
