The Action Award and Club Support of May was presented in assembly with Laura Graham being the recipient of the Action Award and the Charities Club for Club Support.
Laura Graham is a Year 12 student who demonstrates excellent leadership in sports both in and outside of Logan Park. Other than her own successes, this will be Laura's third year coaching Netball, the second year coaching it at Logan Park. She is also currently coaching the Junior Girls Handball team for the second year and coached her brother's badminton team at DNI while she was in Year 9.
Laura had been a great role model for younger students in Logan Park. We wish her all the best for her future leadership and possibly career in sports.
Charities has been an interactive community and is awarded Club Support as the club wish to spend the money on hosting charity events for the 40 Hour Famine, so more money can go towards the event. I would love to see Logan Park reaching the $4000 goal for the 40 Hour Famine that will support the children in South Sudan.
The Action Award and Club Support are initiative set ups and funded by the student representatives 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 good citizens 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 of 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 be more interactive and develop any specific projects.
Winners are selected by the Funding Committee of the LPHS Student Council and must be nominated by themselves, another student or a teacher.
