Bendigo’s own Sun Loong arrived back home this afternoon and BSSC’s VCAL crew were on-hand to see him safely back into his nook in the Golden Dragon Museum. It was a case of coming full-circle for the students who also had the very great responsibility of loading Bendigo’s Imperial Dragon onto the truck three weeks ago.

It was an impressive sight to see the 100-metre-long dragon winding his way around the Dai Gum San precinct under the careful guidance of the Golden Dragon staff and our students.

Assistant Principal Meredith Fettling said it was a credit to the students and showed their connection to community.

“It’s great to see the care and respect the students have shown for an important Bendigo tradition,” she said. “These are young people you would love to employ.”
