An expectant crowd of 60 people attended the SAILABRATION night at the school with the most enthused, the FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras claiming the front pews. The Kids With Cameras grew anxious waiting the thrilling news of outcomes and the knowledge of who had taken out the CHOICE AWARDS. For just on an hour the names were called, and the winners came forward to collect their certificates to constant applause. Apart from the Mayor other guests included Cr. Gilbert Wilson and representatives of the BENDIGO BANK including the local manager Terry Mewha. Apology was received by Dan Tehan MP who was unable to attend due to other commitments. They were joined by family including grandparents and friends there to acknowledge all those that participated and achieved. The GRINNING WINNERS were;

About focusfor

The FOCUS FORCE photographic workshop program for Kids With Cameras is based in Melbourne, Australia. The projects have gone beyond the Victorian borders, into New South Wales, and Tasmania.Through others including a backpacker it has been provided to children in Thailand, and a teacher in Portugal has inspired children there as well. Apart, from the fun of learning about the camera and developing the skill of taking better photos; the best of which are raised to the status of SUPER SHOTS,the works have been mounted as collections under the banner of the FOCUS FORCE FRIENDSHIP EXHIBITIONS, and sent as gifts of friendship and goodwill to the United States, Italy, Japan, China - others are still being worked on. The program enrciches the children's knowledge, and as a side benefit makes them more aware of their own surroundings,and all that is to value where they live. Then comes the delight of being achievers, and having their self esteem boosted by their successes.The term "kids with cameras" was first used by the program's forerunner; CLICKER - the "club for kids with cameras", and dates back to the mid 1980's. The name change came about as wanting to be more appropriate to the older student group that the program now works with.
