Over the past 7 years the College along with Wodonga Middle Years College have seen over 300 young women participate in the Shine Program. The Program sees the students learn about strength, worth and purpose, working with various mentors over the 9 week journey.

Young women walk in to Shine with questions around their identity and their self worth. As the group progresses they begin to grasp the concept of worth and value and they delve into searching out their strength and explore the concept of purpose.
At our Shine Graduation ceremonies, we ask the girls to share a speech with the group about their journey of growth in Shine. In these times the girls share deeply about their newfound strength, worth and purpose and stand together as a new group of friends. There is often tears and lots of laughter!
