The Week That Was – Term 2, Week 10

Tony GoodwinYear 11 Work Experience

I would like to congratulations all the Year 11 students who went on work experience last week. The reports I have received back indicate that the students, on mass, did very well and enjoyed themselves. From the students point of view it was clear that they enjoyed themselves but at their age most of them are still unsure about their future direction after they finish school. Twelve students ventured to Melbourne for the week and had a very positive experience.

Thank you to Mr Andrew Vague, Mr David Coles and Mrs Jan Dunlop who gave up their time to look after the students in Melbourne. Thank you also to all the local organisations that allowed our students to come into their work environments and experience a work place and to the other staff who went and visited the students in the local work places.

Careers Expo

This Tuesday, June 21 is the Western Victoria Careers Expo. Our year 10, 11 and 12 cohort will attend the Expo at Longerenong College. The students who attend will start the process of ‘life after school’ and where to when it comes to a career. It is a great way for them to explore endless possibilities of job opportunities. I look forward to sharing the day with our students and helping them to start thinking about what is possible after they finish their secondary education.

Western Victorian Careers Expo 2016

The Western Victorian Careers Expo, hosted by the Wimmera and Southern Mallee Careers Association (WASM), is country Victoria’s largest careers expo. Since its inception in 1986, this premier regional event has provided a one-stop-shop of vocational information to Western Victorian students, school leavers, job seekers, career changers, those returning to work and people considering further study or training.

This year students from years 10, 11 and 12 will be attending the expo. Year 10 and 11 students will be leaving school at the start of period 2 and the year 12 students leaving at the start of recess. Year 10 and 11 students should attend at least 2 seminars and collect information from 3 exhibitor sites. The seminar program has been incorporated into the newsletter and provided to the students.

13 & Under – MM 26 lost to Dimboola 29

A fantastic team effort saw the girls fall short by only 3 goals this week.  They applied pressure in all areas of the court, with fantastic defence and a huge improvement in passing enabling the girls to outscore their opponents in the second half.

All girls are working hard to improve on their netball skills constantly, attempting to find space in attack and applying pressure in defence.  Best award went to Georgia McIntyre who as always reads the play well allowing her to intercept and defend in GD.  Second Best was Hannah Whyte whose speed and goal practice is paying off in GA.

Incentive awards went to Jaye Farlow who played a new position in GK and Jessie Del in GS whose movement in and out of the ring is improving every week.  Overall all girls contributed to an improved team effort. Continue reading “Minyip Murtoa Football Netball Club”
