Esther Waininau

What preparations are you involved in?

I’m involved in helping with the preparation of Spencer’s visit to the school and the ball that will be held at the golf club.

What will happen on the big dress-up day?

The whole school will hold a dress-up day where each student will dress as a character from one of his movies. Spencer will come along and judge the best costume.

Are you excited about the visit to your school by a Hollywood star?

Yes, it’s something that doesn’t happen every day especially coming from a small town.

Are you a fan of any of his movies, such as the Star Wars or Harry Potter series?

Harry Potter is my favourite series of movies and it’s very exciting that he has starred in the movies.

What are you most looking forward to during the time Spencer is here in Cobram-Barooga?

I’m excited to hear about his life and his schooling days. It will also be interesting to hear about what he had to do to become the actor he is today.

Has the prospect of Spencer Wilding’s visit inspired you in any way — for example, in your career choice?

I’ve always been interested in event management and I’ve enjoyed helping plan Spencer’s visit to Cobram.

Grace Creenaune

What preparations are you involved in?

I have been involved in helping with the ideas for fundraisers and auction ideas to prepare for the visit from Spencer. I have also assisted in getting other students on board to help with music for the night of the ball and photography around the school during the visit.

What will happen on the big dress-up day?

On the big dress-up day the whole school is being encouraged to dress as characters from movies that Spencer Wilding has starred in, with a best dressed competition at lunchtime being judged by Spencer.

Are you excited about the visit to your school by a Hollywood star?

I am very excited for the visit from Spencer to Cobram Secondary College and for him and his family to see all the wonderful things that the school does for the students.

Are you a fan of any of his movies, such as the Star Wars or Harry Potter series?

I was a fan of Harry Potter, but knowing he is coming to our school for such a great cause has given me more interest in the rest of the movies he stars in.

What costume will you wear on the dress-up day?

I am yet to decide on what I am going to be wearing for the dress-up day, but I’m sure it will be a character from the Harry Potter movies or Rogue One.

What are you most looking forward to during the time Spencer is here in Cobram-Barooga?

I am most looking forward to showing Spencer the amazing school which he is attending and everything Cobram and Barooga has to offer and show.

Has the prospect of Spencer Wilding’s visit inspired you in any way - for example, in your career choice?

The planning for Spencer Wilding’s visit has definitely inspired me to look more into a career of event management or a similar career for my future after this year.
