Student's Citizenship Award

Congratulations to Year 10 student Hannah Farhall, as today she was awarded The Order of Australia Association Student’s Citizenship Award.

The Award is given to one student from Year 9 or 10 in each Ballarat secondary school who, through the year, has displayed in various practical ways exceptional qualities of citizenship. These would be demonstrated, for example, through their helping and caring for others, particularly those in need, within the school and/ or within the wider school community.

Hannah was nominated for her participation in the Western Bulldogs Leadership Project and Social Enterprise Project. As part of this project, Hannah developed the ‘Socks of the West’ with two other students and for every pair of socks sold, she donates a pair to the homeless community.

Hannah attended the Civic Reception today at the Ballarat Town Hall where she was presented with a certificate and a medal in recognition of this achievement.

Well done Hannah.
