Myrtleford Times - - Front Page -

ITAL­IAN lan­guage stu­dents from right across the Sand­hurst dio­cese were brought to­gether at the Val­ley Homestead in Ovens this year for the an­nual LOTE Camp.

The camp that was spon­sored by El­ders In­sur­ance Myrtle­ford in­cluded stu­dents from Mar­ian Col­lege, Echuca, Shep­par­ton, Nathalia and Wan­garatta.

The im­mer­sion ex­pe­ri­ence helped pre­pare Year 12 stu­dents ahead of their oral Ital­ian ex­ams, and gave younger pupils a rich taste of Ital­ian cul­ture.

El­ders Myrtle­ford gen­er­ously pro­vided more than 100 colour­ful uni­form tops for the stu­dents and staff in at­ten­dance as the se­nior stu­dents honed their lan­guage skills and oth­ers joined in ac­tiv­i­ties such as Vene­tian maskpaint­ing, drama, cook­ing and singing.

Pro­fes­sional Mel­bournebased ac­tors also gave a Co­me­dia Dell’Arte per­for­mance of Pinoc­chio, be­fore stu­dents put on a ‘Red Faces’ show of their own where Mar­ian Col- lege were ad­judged third.

Mar­ian Col­lege Prin­ci­pal, Cath Wat­ter, said the camp was a tremen­dous suc­cess.

“I would like to ac­knowl­edge the great sup­port that El­ders gives to our com­mu­nity,” she added.
