Video win­ners

The Tatura Guardian - - News -

Win­ners of the Greater Shep­par­ton City Coun­cil’s RE­SPECT video com­pe­ti­tion have been an­nounced.

The win­ners are Grady Tyson, Aritha Per­cra, Cal­lum Tyson and Nathan Lon­hake from Goul­burn Val­ley Gram­mar School and the McAu­ley Cham­pag­nat Pro­gram, of­fered through Notre Dame Col­lege.

Greater Shep­par­ton’s di­rec­tor com­mu­nity Kaye Thom­son con­grat­u­lated the win­ners.

‘‘It is fan­tas­tic to see our young peo­ple get­ting in­volved, show­cas­ing their abil­i­ties and rais­ing aware­ness of an im­por­tant is­sue,’’ she said.

David Ten­nant from Fam­i­ly­Care re­it­er­ated Ms Thom­son’s com­ments.

‘‘Con­grat­u­la­tions to the win­ners, not just on their en­tries but for un­der­stand­ing why RE­SPECT is so im­por­tant to us all,’’ he said.

‘‘Young peo­ple have a vi­tal role to play in en­sur­ing Greater Shep­par­ton is a safe and happy com­mu­nity and we hope the con­ver­sa­tions the com­pe­ti­tion prompted con­tinue.’’

Pa­trice Jack­son from Berry Street said the panel was im­pressed with the high qual­ity of en­tries.

‘‘We were even more im­pressed with the en­trants’ deeper un­der­stand­ing of what RE­SPECT re­ally means,’’ she said.

The pro­ject is a part­ner­ship be­tween Greater Shep­par­ton City Coun­cil, Fam­ily Care and Berry Street.
