This year Maryborough Education Centre are sharing their journey in preparation for the 2014 RACV Energy Breakthrough. Through these progress reports at the end of each term, you’ll be able to find out what the students and teachers have been up to, what’s gone well, what’s not gone so well and what they’re looking forward to in the term ahead.

We’ve put this together to showcase some of the schools involved, and to promote how they successfully operate and manage their Energy Breakthrough teams.

Pizza - Maryborough Education Centre - Term 1 2014 Progress Report

What have you done this term to prepare for the Energy Breakthrough?

Here at the Maryborough Education Centre as a school we have advertised positions for overall Energy Breakthrough management positions in both our junior and secondary levels and we were able to allocate team managers of individual teams.

We’ve also had a review of our performance in the 2013 Energy Breakthrough and we were able to discuss both our positives and negatives.

Planning for 2014 included:

  • Budgets
  • New trikes
  • Equipment
  • Possible sponsorship and fundraising opportunities.

We’ve also discussed the number of teams that will be competing in 2014 and placed entries online.

Students and staff have been able to make a start with fundraising with operating the school canteen for local sport tournaments and Prep-Grade 6 completing their first fundraiser with a pizza meals deal.

Student information sessions have been held this term to discuss entries, expectations and commitment levels to gain places in teams for the event.
