Echuca College was well represented across Echuca Moama at the Anzac Day services. Our captains read the Anzac requiem and laid a wreath at the Echuca and Moama ceremonies.
The College service held on the Friday was magnificent and the respect and dignity shown by our students was outstanding. Aaron Loader played the Last Post and the Reveille on his trumpet and his performance was truly brilliant. Brianna Creed sang the National Anthem acapella and was also outstanding. Our Captains led the ceremony with presentations from Taylah Cochrane about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in the wars and Amber Harrop about the Echuca College Gallipoli Tour commemorating 100 years last year. Mr Eeles spoke about his time at Villers Bretonneux last year and how that town has so much respect for Australia and Australians.
It was wonderful to be able to host the ceremony in our newly renovated stadium.
Our Year 12 students organised, coordinated and hosted a very fun quiz night for all teachers and year 12 students to participate in. The costumes on night were very imaginative, it was great to see double denim making a comeback although we were a little concerned how many teachers were able to produce bad t-shirts and bad ties.
Maegan Johnson and Hollie Mitchell did a wonderful job hosting the evening and provided many laughs for the crowd. The mini games to break up the rounds were very entertaining with singing, dancing and even a CPR competition.
The PJ squad won the night after the teachers were disqualified, apparently someone was seen with a phone – Mr Goss. All funds raised were donated to the Year 12 Relay for Life Team. A great night was had by all.
