Zara and Anna awarded for their leadership

Last week Zara Dempsey (Year 7) and Anna Myers (Year 5)  were awarded a SchoolAid National Award in recognition of their philanthropic leadership.

The girls were presented with their awards by SchoolAid Chairman Warren Bingham at the Halogen Australia National Young Leadership Day at the International Convention Centre Sydney.

In front of an audience of over 5,000 school students, the girls shared details about the work they have led to support others. On stage Anna confidently talked about how she has helped communities in Fiji by collecting hundreds of donated books here at home and taking them overseas to Fijian schools and libraries. Zara spoke about how she has worked to enhance Indigenous students’ literacy levels in remote Arnhem Land communities.

The girls were commended on being true examples of young leadership in action.
