Echuca College News
Our class of 2015 attended their Graduation ceremony on Wednesday November 18th. The event was held at the Dungala Function Centre, a spectacular venue overlooking the billabong. Due to increased demand for tickets, with a large number of our families attending the event it was necessary to move the event to Dungala. Our students presented themselves beautifully and the room was full of smiling, proud families. Mr Eeles joined the class for evening and wished them all the best for their future endeavours, reminding them they will always be a part of the Echuca College familiy.
Our College captains Georgia Harris, Amy Wrigt, Corey McGrath and Dan Gretgrix were the masters of ceremony and sincerely thanked the teaching and support staff of Echuca College for all the work and effort that has gone into the Class of 2015.
The Campaspe Cohuna LLEN VET in Schools Excellence Awards was a gala event held at the Moama Bowling Club. Students needed to be nominated by their trainer or workplace employer for the awards. Over 105 students from across all categories were nominated and 63 finalists were presented on the night. Jess Grundy won the 2015 VETis Excellence Award for Sport and Recreation. Thank you to the CCLLEN for organising such a great event that recognises the excellence displayed by so many of our students.
Our Year 8 students travelled to Anglesea for camp, students camped and needed to provide their own tents and bedding. Students participated in a wide range of activities including surfing, stand up paddle boarding, canoeing, snorkelling as well as many other fun beach activities. Students also visited Erskine Falls near Lorne and did some bushwalking. We were lucky to have beautiful weather and all students have reported having a wonderful time even though they were a little tired when they returned. Thank you to all the wonderful and supportive staff who travelled with the students and cooked all the meals.
