Euka Social Clubs

The Euka Social Clubs are busy and thriving. It is proving an enjoyable time for Euka students to get together and enjoy a hobby as a group.

Just a quick note to parents and students in the Cooking Club. From term 3 there is a time change for this Club.

Student Happenings

One of our talented Grade 11 students, Jackson, was selected out of hundreds of students, to spend time learning about animation at the Animal Logic studio. This is a very highly sought-after opportunity and we were thrilled to hear that Jackson was chosen. Here is a little of what Jackson had to say after the work experience time.  “Being selected to join the one-week Animal Logic work experience programme was so exciting.  For me, it was perfect timing to be able to meet and learn from the talented and generous people in the Animal Logic Studio. More importantly, I now have confidence and a clear vision of my dream job in the animation industry. Thank you Animal Logic for a fantastic week and such great guidance.”
