Congratulations to Sam and Alice, who have received Student Citizenship Awards from The Order of Australia Association South Australia Branch today.

Presented by Peter Routley AM, the awards recognise young people who actively engage with and contribute to their school and local communities.

Sam is an agent for positive change in policy and practice, technological innovation and inclusion, and is a leader in co-design of the school curriculum. She demonstrates high levels of honesty, kindness and integrity to peers and staff, offering practical help to students with maths concepts, while engaging in extended mathematics learning herself. Sam is a respected school leader, and also competes as an elite gymnast.

Through her extensive involvement in working towards becoming a Queen’s Scout, Alice has contributed significantly to the school community, especially through her organisation and leadership in a full day hike for the students. Her volunteering and environmental activities with the school have been greatly appreciated.
