The Outstanding Student Award in Health and Community Services was presented to Kim Foster.
As a result of her studies in disability work Ms Foster has gained employment at the Baringa Special School in Leongatha where she enjoys her work with children enormously.
Dawn Poletti was presented with the Outstanding Student Award in Business Studies.
Having completed a Certificate II in Office Administration in 2001, Ms Poletti recently participated in an employment program with South Gippsland Shire. She is continuing her studies in the workplace, and has now completed a Certificate III in Office Administration.

The students from both public and private schools have been studying the 2-year course, which included technical classes, on-line classes, excursions and field trips to Melbourne.
The students gained extra experience by working in McCartins Hotel restaurant every Tuesday at lunchtime over a 10-week period.
Linda Austin, Hospitality Coordinator at GippsTAFE in Leongatha said that there is currently a huge shortage of hospitality staff in the area, with some of the students gaining employment at McCartins Hotel and most of the students getting part time or casual work at other local venues.
