Some of our Year 11 students had the opportunity to attend the PARTY – Prevention of Alcohol Risk Related Trauma in Youth – seminar held at the Capital Theatre in Bendigo. The program was coordinated by The Alfred Hospital and Bendigo Health. The program aimed to make youth more aware of making the right or safe choices and owning the resulting consequences. The program was very emotional and often confronting but very worthwhile. Students were able to participate in a mock intensive care ward, practise giving CPR and experience life with prosthetic limbs and neck braces. The 11 Echuca College students took a considerable life lesson away from the program, whilst it also highlighted the amazing medical facilities that we are lucky enough to access if we are sick.
