The News has partnered with Greater Shepparton secondary schools this year to bring you an insight into their school year.
While they will document their educational journey, the students will also talk about their interests and hobbies and their views on topics such as current affairs, social issues, politics and religion.
We thank all schools, teachers and students for their enthusiasm to get involved in the project and hope you enjoy their contributions throughout Term 2.
Today, we introduce the students who have been nominated by their respective schools to take part, ahead of the first part of the series in the first week of Term 2.
My name is Jarrod Pretty and I am in Year 11 and attend McGuire College.
I am studying VET sport and recreation, health and human development, physical education, legal studies, English and math. My favourite subjects are the sport/health-related subjects.
I enjoy going to Anytime Fitness because everyone is always helpful and supportive, I also enjoy playing Fortnite with the boys.
In my spare time I am either reading a book, playing the Xbox or going to the gym.
I love football and support the Western Bulldogs, and my inspirations are Joe Delaney and Bob Murphy.
