Nelson Gray has since made it through to the Australian All Schools Track & Field Championships in Adelaide in December. He came first in both the Boys U18 Para Discus and Shot put in the Victorian All Schools competition.

Also competing in the Victorian All Schools event, Evan Warman came 7th in the Boys U17 Javlin and Marlon Trevitt came 2nd in the Boys U15 400m and 3rd in the Boys U15 200m.

An excellent effort from all three boys making it through to this high standard of competition.

Elwood College students are invited to put their hand up for the The City of Port Phillip's Youth Advisory Committee.

This will be open to young people aged 16 to 25 years that live, work or study in Port Phillip with a desire to be involved and contribute to their local community on issues affecting young people.

One of the main aims of the committee is to increase young people’s involvement and representation in Council planning and decision-making processes. Council will be invited to attend meetings and speak with the YAC about key initiatives. The committee will offer development opportunities for participants and access to specialist guest speakers.

The Youth Advisory Committee will meet at the St Kilda Town Hall on Tuesday evenings every three weeks except for school holidays.

This is a great opportunity for students to develop leadership qualities and experience.
