[an annual, week-long celebration of young people (aged 12-25) throughout Australia] we thought we’d chat to a local [Maryborough] school to find out what being involved in the RACV Energy Breakthrough means to them.
We chatted to both staff and students from the Maryborough Education Centre who have been involved with the program from all year levels. The Maryborough Education Centre along with Bairnsdale Primary School is one of the two schools who have been involved with the event each year since it’s inception.

National Youth Week is a joint initiative of the Australian, State, Territory and Local Governments. It gives youth an opportunity to express their ideas and views, and act on issues that affect their lives.
Lachy probably never knew what he was in for when he first volunteered to help out on the Holden Stage at the 2009 RACV Energy Breakthrough. Whilst he participated in the Innovations in Technology category back in 2005, he has been on the 'other side of the fence' ever since and now manages the event's website, wifi network and Holden Stage. Away from the Energy Breakthrough, Lachy is heavily involved in the local Maryborough community across events, community radio and theatre and he was nominated for the for the Saward Dawson Community Service and Volunteering award in 2013.
