First week at Mickleham Secondary College

[Upbeat music plays throughout.]

[The video opens with a panning shot of an outdoor area of the school. A central paved square is surrounded by young trees and small plants in flowerbeds. A school building is visible in the background.]

[Four students speak one-by-one, facing the camera. They each sit on an ottoman in a classroom with light red carpets, soft modern furnishings and white shelves in the background. They are each wearing dark green school uniforms.]

Student 1: The best thing about starting at a brand-new school is you get to pave the way for the younger students to come in.

Student 2: You're the oldest ones there.

Student 3: You get to meet new teachers and students and you can make plenty of new friends.

Student 1: My favourite subject is music because I really like to sing and play instruments.

Student 4: Maths. I find it interesting.

Student 2: My favourite subject is PE because I love sports.

Student 3: My favourite subject is art because I like drawing a lot in my free time.

Student 1: When I grow up I want to be a scientist because I really like helping other people and learning new things and discovering new things that no one else has ever discovered.

Student 2: What I want to be when I grow up is a policeman.

Student 4: Something successful.

Student 3: I don't know what I want to be when I grow up, but maybe an artist.

Student 1: What makes it a special day is that I got to help open up a brand-new school with everything's brand new and that's a big thing, no one really gets to do that.

[The camera pans across a paved school yard with young trees, wooden benches, and other school buildings are also visible. The trees rustle in a light breeze.]  

[A white background appears with the VSBA and Victoria State Government logos.]
