The RACV Energy Breakthrough website is relaunched courtesy of Bendigo ITand the Breakthrough’s new Online Manger, Nigel Preston.

Central Victorian information technology company, Bendigo IT, and the Planning Committee are proud to unveil the newly renovated Energy Breakthrough website as part of an new ongoing sponsorship deal.

TodayÕs generation of Energy Breakthrough participants are web savvy and a current, visually appealing, interactive and highly informative website Ð and Bendigo IT has been excellent to work in achieving these goals.

Participants of the Breakthrough are openly invited to:

– Log in and participate in the Forums;

– Announce exciting team developments;

– Teachers can share curriculum materials;

– Submit your photos to the Gallery;

– Link your schoolÕs Energy Breakthrough website (or suggest a relevant site to be linked); or

– Provide feedback and suggestions to the Planning Committee.

After attending and being inspired by the 2004 event, Bendigo IT approached the Planning Committee early this year with a sponsorship proposal which included not only site hosting but a revamp of our online presence. The company also hosted and maintained the website for the 2004 Commonwealth Youth Games another event focused upon young people fulfilling their potential.

Stage one of website redevelopment included the bulk of the design work completed with the core content included onto the website. Stage Two will be rolled out around the mid-year break and will include an interactive course map, an online entry list for 2005, a detailed results archive reaching back to 1991 and a comprehensive event history.

This is actually the fourth redesign and third hosting of the eventÕs site since 1999, with Vox Bandicoot and Highview Christian Community College providing their time, energy and resources at no cost to the event throughout that period. The Planning Committee appreciates magnitude of site management and special thanks go to Dominic Facteau of Highview College for operating the site over the past few years, who was required to maintain the site on top of his busy existing workload.

The new site is easier for the Planning Committee to maintain without the need for an intermediary – and we hope that students, teachers, parents and spectators are kept up-to-date in the lead-up to this event and beyond.
