The Action Award and Club Support for April was presented to Maggie Gorman and the Robotics Club respectively.
Maggie Gorman is a Year 12 student who demonstrates community service by volunteering in the Warrington Surf Life Saving Club as a volunteer lifeguard. She has dedicated her time during weekends and summer holidays to patrol Warrington beach. Her selfless actions are examples of integrity, a value that is held in high regard in the Logan Park whanau, which makes her an excellent role model in the school community.
The Robotics Club has been very successful in the past years, it was awarded Club Support as the club wish to spend the money on more robotics equipment including rechargable AA batteries, and organising containers. I would love to see Robotics Club being a more interactive and growing community in Logan Park.
The Action Award and Club Support are initiative set ups and funded by the student representative on the Board of Trustees. The Action Award presents a $25 prize to any student who demonstrates community service, leadership and/or innovative thinking, therefore being a good citizen outside of the normal boundaries of academia, sports and cultural activities. The prize offers the opportunity for recipients to be connected with mentors and experts from the wider community to assist in the development in any specific projects they wish to pursue.
The Club Support presents a $25 prize to support any club activity in Logan Park, including starting a new club. It allows clubs to to be more interactive and develop specific projects. Winners are selected by the Funding Committee of the LPHS Student Council.
