Fred Hollows Humanity Award - Well done Zoe!

« Go Back | Date Posted: 15-Nov-2019 |

I nominated Zoe Suthers in Year 6 for the Fred Hollows Humanity Award because she is a fabulous all-round, got it together, child.  She is constantly helping around the school and volunteering for whatever is going on. She has a true servant heart.
We have what we call a PALs program (Playground Activity Leaders) where Year 6 students volunteer at the beginning of the year to be PALs to the K-4 children. That entails being part of a rostered team that spend recess and lunch setting up and running games and play centres for younger students.  
This year we had an almost 95% take-up in Year 6 which is unheard of in the program's history.  Zoe was my immediate and only choice regardless of the fact that we have 40 PALs volunteers this year.
She is always bubbly, eager to assist, happy to be at school and very resilient - which is becoming rare amongst JS children.
I couldn't think of a more deserving student.
