Stu­dents sup­port cin­ema plan

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Fol­low­ing a joint meeting of stu­dent rep­re­sen­ta­tive coun­cils from all Co­bram schools, as well as Ba­rooga Pub­lic School, last month, it was de­cided all would hold an out-of-uni­form day to raise money and aware­ness for the com­mu­nity cin­ema project.

Last Mon­day, the stu­dents stayed true to their word and each school ditched their uni­forms for the day.

Co­bram Sec­ondary Col­lege and Co­bram Pri­mary School stu­dents were the most ad­ven­tur­ous, dress­ing up as their favourite movie characters in line with the com­mu­nity cin­ema spirit.

At the joint stu­dent coun­cil meeting, Com­mu­nity Cin­ema Inc. trea­sur­ersec­re­tary Rob Morey asked the stu­dents to take own­er­ship of the cin­ema project if they wanted to see it come to fruition to be en­joyed in the fu­ture.

Af­ter learn­ing Co­bram Sec­ondary Col­lege had raised $350 on the day, Mr Morey was thrilled and said it sent a great mes­sage to the com­mu­nity that the youth in the town des­per­ately want to see the cin­ema go ahead.

‘‘It’s just amaz­ing what these young peo­ple can come up with. It’s not about the money raised, that’s just a bonus, it’s about the ef­fort and com­mu­nity aware­ness,’’ he said.

Af­ter the out-of-uni­form day, stu­dents will now start work­ing on a slo­gan and logo com­pe­ti­tion for the cin­ema in an ef­fort to raise fur­ther aware­ness.

Dress-ups: Co­bram Sec­ondary Col­lege stu­dents brought their A-game to dress up day. Even prin­ci­pal Kim­ber­ley Tem­pest (Cat Woman) got in on the act.

Characters at­tend school: These Co­bram Pri­mary School stu­dents cer­tainly got into the spirit of the dress-up theme, go­ing as their favourite movie characters.

Show of sup­port: St Joseph’s Pri­mary School stu­dents in their ca­sual clothes to sup­port the com­mu­nity cin­ema.

Re­laxed day: Co­bram Angli­can Grammar School lead­ers Chloe Back­house, Ashah Downie, Jesy Bright, Emma Nolan and Vidisha Chouhan.
