In 2015, Cranbourne East Secondary College became a member of the Safe Schools Coalition. This is to ensure that students are comfortable to be themselves within our school and feel as though our school is a safe place for them. Safe Schools Coalition is a fantastic collection of organisations and schools who work together to ensure students and families who are same-sex attracted, intersex and gender diverse feel included within the school community.
To help build students’ confidence and support systems at Cranbourne East Secondary College, the ‘Diversity Club’ was also created in 2015 with great success. Diversity Club is a lunchtime meeting where students discuss current issues, LGBTQIA news and many other interesting things! It is a teacher supervised safe space for students of all genders and sexualities.
