“I would like to thank you and your team for a wonderful day last Friday at the College. Our Prep students had a wonderful day. They were all very tired at the end of the day. Could you please pass on our appreciation to everyone.” Karl Stenning, Principal Echuca South Primary School.
“Congratulations on the success of Friday’s Indonesian Immersion Day! Your Indonesian team did a fabulous job with the organisation of the entire day and their attention to detail reflected the enjoyment the students experienced. Congratulations Courtney, Phillipa and Di!!
Congratulations are also in order for the students of Echuca College! Their behaviour and manner in which they conducted themselves throughout the preparation and the day was exemplary. They surely did you all proud!
I had a fabulous time and enjoyed being a part of the Echuca family, even if it was for a very brief moment.
Thank you! Terima kasih!!
Look forward to future visits!” Angela Minuzzo the Languages Education Officer/ Improvement Projects & Principal Employment Unit.
