Sister School Relationships

These relationships are strengthened by teacher and student exchanges to encourage cultural and educational understanding and growth.

Since 1999, Traralgon College, Lowanna College and Kurnai College have maintained sister school relationships with regular student and teacher exchanges for specified periods whenever practicable and they are all continuing to develop and leverage off these fantastic relationships.

Traralgon College was the first Gippsland school to officially gain accreditation by the Education Department to educate international students on a full fee-paying basis as well as accreditation to operate exchange programs internationally.
