Over the past two weeks, I have been very pleased to present the Corangamite Medal to students in some 26 schools across the Corangamite electorate.
The Corangamite Medal is a new annual award I have initiated which recognises outstanding citizenship in students.
The award is presented to one primary and one secondary student in each participating school who demonstrates a high standard in attitude and achievement; a full commitment to the ethos of the school and an awareness of others and their needs.
The Corangamite Medal also recognises an exceptional student who makes a positive contribution to his or her school community over a number of years.
Celebrating the achievements of young people and encouraging the leaders of tomorrow is so important.
One primary and one secondary school winner of the Corangamite Medal will be selected to travel to Canberra for a “Leaders of Tomorrow” visit to Parliament House.
I have been delighted with how well the Corangamite Medal has been received across a diverse range of schools.
