$6000 RAISED FOR THE SCHOOL FROM THE SOLD OUT 12 BRIGHT VINES 2015 VINTAGE!
Bruce and Annie Holmes from Ringer Reef presented VCAL students with a cheque for $6,000 raised through selling 48 dozen bottles of student grown sauvignon blanc – 12 Bright Vines 2015 Vintage. This represents $70 profit for each $80 box of wine sold, an incredibly generous gesture from Bruce & Annie. The money raised will be used to continue to fund the VCAL wine project into the future, including costs of students transport to and from the winery, printing wine labels, purchasing secateurs, installing an automatic watering system. The success of the project means that there will also be money available to fund other projects within the school. A true social enterprise, well done to all involved.
The labels for the new vintage are currently being printed and VCAL students will use the labelling machine at Ringer Reef next week to label the 300 bottles of the new vintage. Well done to Matilda Manning who received a cheque for $50 for winning the wine label design competition, thank you to all entries and to all who voted for their favourite label.
Following the labelling process we will be able to launch our new vintage. Watch this space for an invitation to the wine launch later this term.

LAW WEEK – BALI 9 Q&A WITH VERONICA HACCOU
I am thankful we could attend this Law Week Q and A as it provided many schools with information that we never knew, and gave us all an insight into the members of the Bali 9’s lives and how they were treated prior to the execution. Veronica Haccou spoke with passion and integrity and has inspired not only me, but also everyone who was present.

HALOGEN YOUNG LEADERS DAY
Halogen is an excursion to Melbourne for junior leaders. We had to leave Bright at 5 o’clock on the 2nd March to get to Melbourne on time. When we got there, there were lots of kids, about 4000. We sat in a theatre and listened to people talking. They were talking about how to be a good leader. One of the talkers came third in the paper plane throwing world cup and he was throwing paper planes out to the audience while talking about his life. We all had a great time and it is a great opportunity to become a good leader.
