Community invited to Moree Secondary College promotional film launch and school tour

WHEN it comes to shaping the future of Moree youth, there is no greater tool than education.

And, as a platform to ensure the ongoing sustainability of the local community, Moree Secondary College is by far the town’s greatest asset.

In recent months Moree Secondary College P&C has been working on a communications strategy celebrating the local high school, aimed at promoting and showcasing MSC and the success of its alumni.

But with the community losing a large number of students to boarding schools or families relocating for education, P&C president Kelly James said the campaign was two-fold.

Kelly James, Grace Carter, Christopher Sim and Janelle Montgomery invite the whole community to a special evening at Moree Secondary College on Tuesday, October 30. RSVPs are required by Friday, October 26.

“We have an amazing educational option right here on our door-step, but there are many in the community who are totally unaware of the strength of MSC, the facilities and opportunities offered, and the high calibre of students and teaching staff,” Mrs James said.

“This campaign is about giving students and staff a well-deserved pat on the back, but also encouraging the community to come and have a look at MSC, promoting the fact that there is an extremely viable education option right here in Moree.”

The campaign will culminate with a film produced by local filmmakers, Rabbit Hop Films, to be launched later this month during a special event at MSC Albert St Campus.

MSC P&C’s Janelle Montgomery says she is thrilled with the video, which features a number of students, past and present.

“It’s a fantastic reflection on the students and the school, and what can be achieved here in regional Australia,” Mrs Montgomery said.

“Our long-term goal is to ensure a thriving secondary college, supported by the community, well into the future.

“A strong local high school also safeguards the future of our community, encourages local youth and skills are retained within the region.”

Mrs Montgomery thanked Moree Plains Shire Council and Moree Secondary College, which also provided funding for the campaign.

“This is a video that the whole community can be proud of, as is our local high school,’ she said.

The film will be launched on Tuesday, October 30 at 5pm at the MSC Albert Street Campus.

With the event opened to the public, Mrs James encouraged all community members to attend, with tours of the school facilities during the event.
