Echuca College News
On Friday a group of very talented grade 3/4 students twinkled toed their way to the Echuca College Dance Studio. Once they arrived, the students leapt, twirled, spun and boogied for a morning full of fun. After warming up and stretching, the students perfected and showcased their routine to ‘Uptown Funk’, which came together really well.
We really enjoyed having the dancers use our facilites and would like to thank Amy Connors for organising the excursion.
Great work boys and girls, you are all superstars!
Our sport scholarship students travelled to Rochester on Tuesday 16th June to listen to Stacia Joseph speak about her journey to becoming a professional hockey player and representing Australia at the highest level. Stacia won a silver medal at the champion’s trophy tournament after losing a penalty shoot-out in the final. Stacia talked to the students about being resilient and that the path to reach your goals will not always be straight forward. In her experience she found that it was not the super talented juniors that made it to the top level but those who were willing to do what others wouldn’t and do the extra work required to stand out. Stacia also pointed out it is crucial for your goals to be about what you can control and that when you turn up to play in competition you can have already succeeded before you walk out on the field knowing you have done everything possible to be prepared for the event. The sport scholarship students came away very motivated and ready to as Stacia put it, “love the grind!”.
Yvonne Southern, Year 10 student, was featured in the May Dolly Magazine. Yvonne is a passionate artist who loves to draw. Yvonne completed a questionnaire for Dolly and was selected to feature in their reader’s column.
Yvonne combines her studies of Art at Echuca College with a weekly art class at Le Clerc Design. This semester she is studying Media, Visual Communication and she studied Art last semester. She hopes to continue her studies of Art after Year 12 at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Yvonne and her family visited the University last year and had a tour of the facilities, and they were very impressed.
Yvonne is unsure of what she would like to do in the future but would like to do investigate working in the area of design or magazine illustrator.
