Beech­worth stu­dents dazzle

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - By MARK STEPHENS

AN ‘ex­trav­a­ganza’ at the Old Beech­worth Gaol or­ga­nized by the Beech­worth Sec­ondary Col­lege cer­tainly was fan­tas­tic.

“The stu­dents have been plan­ning the event col­lab­o­rat­ing with Indigo Shire Youth Worker and mu­si­cian Sal Kim­ber, and the FREZZA pro­gram,” Prin­ci­ple Tr­ish Broom said.

“With the help from Headspace and An­tiSui­cide they set up a chill out room where stu­dents can go to re­lax and get away from it all.”

The Old Gaol was filled with mar­ket stalls, food stalls, mu­sic, dra­matic per­for­mances, art ex­hi­bi­tions and ro­botic dis­plays.

“There was a won­der­ful art ex­hi­bi­tion be­side the cells from the se­nior art stu­dents dis­play­ing the deep level of thought that was con­cern­ing some of the artists,” Ms Broom said.

“The ex­trav­a­ganza was a good op­por­tu­nity to high­light the many cre­ative and com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties that the col­lege en­cour­ages and we thank the team at the Old Beech­worth Gaol for the free use of the venue.”
