A large number of students from across year levels have volunteered to help out with the Primary School athletic days. Students will visit Echuca Primary, Echuca South Primary and Echuca West Primary as well as supporting the schools at the interschool carnival in September. Many of the volunteers return to their primary school to participate and enjoy visiting their previous school.
Carmel O’Connell, the Physical Education Coordinator, from Echuca Primary commented “I just wanted to thank you (Echuca College) for the wonderful helpers you sent to us for our Athletics carnival. They were involved, positive and even asked to run in the relay at the end of the day. They were great ambassadors for your school and a great asset for us. Thank you.”
Karl Stenning, Principal Echuca South Primary, “Thank you for helping us out at our sports today. It is fantastic to see College students at our school in their uniform.”
The program is beneficial both to the primary school and Echuca College.
