It is with great pleasure that we acknowledge Kathleen H, current Year 12 student and Sustainability Captain, who was awarded Boroondara Young Citizen of the Year for 2016 during the recent Australia Day celebrations at the Hawthorn Town Hall.
Kathleen has always been the sort of person who has sought to improve the lives of those around her. At School, Kathleen's willingness to show compassion and give of her time in so many causes has endeared her to students and staff across all year levels. In the community it has been a similar story. Kathleen has a long history of volunteering in many different capacities. Environmental support, in home care for the elderly, volunteering at the Salvation Army Charity Shop, numerous sporting volunteer roles, fundraising for McDonald House Charities and Ride to Conquer Cancer are just some of the ways in which Kathleen has significantly supported the wider community.
We recognise Kathleen’s commitment and achievement and hope that her actions will inspire others to volunteer in whatever capacity they can.
