A woman who attacked another woman at The Bluestone nightclub has been ordered to complete unpaid community work.
The woman, who The Courier has chosen not to name, pleaded guilty at the Ballarat Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.
Police lawyer Jenna Bridges told the court she poured a drink on a woman at The Bluestone at 1.30am on January 1, 2019, before grabbing her by the hair and pulling her to the ground.
The court heard the victim went outside and the accused followed her, threw bottles and cans at her head, kicked her five times and punched her to the head.
Ms Bridges said the victim attended hospital and suffered concussion.
The court heard the victim had not provoked the accused and they were did not know each other previously.
Ms Bridges told the court further charges relate to an incident on September 13, 2019 when the accused punched and scratched her former partner after he told her he no longer wanted to be in a relationship.
A Ballarat defence lawyer said the accused had engaged with the Court Integrated Services Program during her time on bail.
The lawyer said she had also engaged with counselling services and a mental health care plan.
"She has been shown the right path and has gone down that path and not put a toe off it," he said.
The lawyer said the accused was due to begin full-time study this year.
Magistrate Letizia Torres said she considered the offences serious and the accused's reactions 'very poor'.
The accused was sentenced to a six month community corrections order with a requirement she complete 40 hours of unpaid community work, without conviction.
"I take into account you did well on the Court Integrated Services Program and you have done what you can to help yourself," she said.
