The Benalla Youth Engagement Program (BYEP) has been cooking up a storm! The students took part in a cooking day with Chris Mullavey from the Community Projects department of The Centre and cooked up a feast of sausage rolls, enchiladas and chocolate cake.
The cooking class was a great way to engage the students in a very 'hands-on' approach and gives them the skills to go cook these dishes at home which is fantastic.
Well done to the students who took part in the class!
Ride2Work Day took place on Wednesday the 16th October with a group of participants from The Centre getting involved in the ride.
A community breakfast was held at the YMCA/WISAC (Wangaratta Indoor Sports and Aquatic Centre) which was supported by The Centre's Act Belong Commit program, Rock & Road Cycles and RoadSafe North East and WISAC. Riders enjoyed a massive breakky with the choice of bacon and eggs, fruit salad, yoghurt and more which was all supplied through the above sponsors. The turn out for the event was fantastic and it's a great initiative to get our community active and involved in community events. Jacq Hobbs from the YMCA/WISAC said "It's fun, it's free, it's good for you and it's good for the environment".
It was great day for all involved and if you want to participate next year in the ride, then check out www.ride2work.com.au.

A huge congratulations to local star Renee Kosch, who has won a Gold Medal at the World Dwarf Games in Michigan USA, in Boccia.
Renee started playing Boccia in 2009 at a SSPA (Short Statured People of Australia) sporting weekend in Albury. In 2012 she started to take the sport more seriously, competing in the Victorian State Titles in Melbourne, and then the National Championships where she came second in the pairs and fourth in the singles. More recently in 2013, Renee placed third in the singles in the National Championships, and can add to her list of success a Gold Medal at an International level!
The Centre's CARN (Centre Active Recreation Network) Access All Abilities Program has supported Renee in her training, and is very excited for her achievements- well done Renee!!!
