​NE​WS & EVENTS​

Green Fingers and Thumbs

There is something very satisfying and relaxing about growing your own veges. Making a raised garden bed, preparing the soil and choosing the seedlings to plant is all part of the learning at AWCC. Students put together the garden beds from a variety of materials including old packing timber and there is even an old cast iron bath. We might need a green house next to prevent frost damage. Bring on the lettuces and tomatoes! 

ANZAC Day

Lest we forget. 

ANZAC Day is a time for all Australians to remember the sacrifice of our soldiers. The student run service held in Wodong and visit from Legacy in Albury in the week leading up to ANZAC Day provided thoughtful commemorations. Our student leaders placed a wreath at the Wodonga Service on 25 April.

Don't be a bystander when it comes to anti-bullying! Mikaela, Montana and Jessie add their voice to Albury Wodonga youth at The Big Shout organised by Headspace. We look forward to these student leaders bringing back some ideas to inform the AWCC anti-bullying plan

Ready Steady Cook!

Looking forward to cooking up a storm this year with Tamsin and the team in the hospitality kitchen. Once again this year, Uniting Care have been involved with VCAL students in the kitchen at Wodonga  and are focused on a project to improve the decor of the Albury School.

Sound Out 2016

Is a future as a student at the AWCC Independent Schools in the cards? Lead Teacher, David Pickett tried out his fortune telling at Wodonga Council's, Sound Out 2016 event. 

Year 9 and 10 at Wodonga!

We are excited to be introducing a Year 9/10 class at our High Street Wodonga campus in 2016. This four day per week, flexible program will mirror the offering at Kiewa Street in South Albury. We have a great science lab, computer lab, bakery, hospitality kitchen, light filled class rooms and a student common room at our Wodonga campus. In 2016 the plan will be for some increased movements of students between the two sites to better use our facilities to improve student learning outcomes.Of course the program is dependent on numbers but we have already enrolled a sizeable group with room for more. If you know someone who belongs in our program, we’d love to welcome them! Contact reception@awcc.edu.au for an enrolment pack and to find out more

Graduation Celebration!

We celebrated a wonderful occasion at the Graduation Ceremony on 26 November with three students from the Wodonga school and three from the Albury school graduating from Year 12. At the Graduation Ceremony, the Alan Cracknell Scholarship funded by the Rotary Club of Wodonga Central was presented to Lucy to assist her in continuing her studies at Albury TAFE. Also at the graduation, Mikaela, Natasha and Brydie  received presentations from Chris Brooks, Managing Director at Ron Finemore Transport for their commitment and dedication to their studies in 2015.

Most Innovative Solar Car Design 2016

On 30 October our Solar Car team took part in the annual Solar Car Design Competition. This year we came 5th overall and took out the award for most innovative design. Thank you so much to Blacklocks for their ongoing sponsorship and to Robbie Bolt for all of his time and effort throughout the year working with our students on this great program. It is most appreciated!

Broughton House Youth Refuge Upgrade

The VCAL students are volunteering at Broughton House Youth Refuge in Albury, to renovate and revamp the four bedroom home, which has been working with young people in our community for over 30 years. Broughton House is for young people who have become homeless or are ‘at risk’ of becoming homeless. At the present time the refuge is dull, out dated and needs a homely touch. Our goal is to make the young people feel safe and comfortable during their stay at Broughton House, but to make this possible we need your help. Thank you to Alatalo who helped our students learn design principles to enable them to work on this project.
