Principal's Blog

As I am writing this article, I am wondering where this term is going. The first four weeks seem to have gone past us in the blink of an eye but yet so much has happened already. Congratulations to our students and staff for how they have started the term in and out of the classroom.

Year 9 RITE Journey Auction

Last Wednesday, there was a hive of excitement around this year’s RITE Journey Auction.  There were some great items put up for grabs and students certainly seemed eager to grab some bargains like Mrs Burton’s Uber Eats to McDonalds which went for $100. Collectively the College pulled their resources in an impressive bid nearing $500 to shave Mr Wiese's hair. 

To the Year 9 students and College Staff who supported this event – thank you and well done for getting behind a great cause with over $2000 raised for the Pink Ribbon Foundation.

RED Carpet Youth Awards

One of my joys as Principal at Victory is that I often get invited to community events in the local Albury Wodonga area and last Friday night was one such occasion. I had the pleasure of attending the 10th RED Carpet Youth Awards Gala Dinner at The Cube. The night acknowledges the amazing achievements and efforts of local youth in the Wodonga area in a formal way. I would like to acknowledge and congratulate the following students who were finalists for an award this year:

  • Andrea Bejsta for ‘Sport & Recreation Volunteer Award’
  • Aleisha Coyle for ‘Individual Community Service Award’
  • Lauren Coyle for ‘Individual Community Service Award’
  • Abigail Malpass for ‘Youth Carer Award’

In addition to these nominations, Lauren Coyle and Abigail Malpass were nominated for 2018 RED Capet Youth Ambassador. Finalists are selected throughout the nomination and interview processes.  Congratulations to Lauren and Abigail for their nominations for this significant RED Carpet Youth Award.

A special acknowledgement to Abby Vogelsang and Darlene Knights who were members of the 2018 RED Carpet Committee and spent many hours supporting the planning and preparation to ensure the event was a success - well done Abby & Darlene. 

Thanks for your ongoing support and as always, please feel free to reach out with questions or concerns.

Yours in Christ,

Mr John Thompson   Principal  Pg Cert Ed Lead, B Ed
