On a recent visit to Roleystone Community College, Darling Range MLA Alyssa Hayden caught up with Principal Mark Brookes and the College Executive and asked them to convey her thanks to our students, who recently volunteered to join her community care team. This group called on more than 2,000 older residents during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in WA to check on their welfare and well-being.
Mrs Hayden also recognized two of our Year 6 student councillors, Ava Wolfenden and Kaidy Robson, who during limited school activities at the College because of the pandemic, used their time to help Year 3 students with their reading.
Mrs Hayden said this volunteering which demonstrated compassion, integrity and kindness towards others, is recognized as a great attribute for the Fred Hollows Humanity Award. This annual award is run by the Fred Hollows Foundation and since 2012 has recognised 1,500 students nationwide who make a positive difference in the lives of others.
Fred Hollows was an ophthalmologist, well-known for his work restoring the eyesight of thousands of Australians and people across the world.
Nominations for the award are now open and anyone who recognizes any Year 6 students, who demonstrate compassion, integrity and kindness, is encouraged to put their name forward.
For more information visit  www.hollows.org/fredhollowshumanityaward  before Friday 11 September.
Mrs Hayden also extended an invitation to all our Student Councillors to visit and tour WA’s Parliament House, in West Perth. Lucky students!
