Young leaders recognised for outstanding contribution to local community

 

Young leaders from the Central Coast have been recognised for their outstanding contribution to the local community at
the Northlakes Rotary Primary Citizenship Awards hosted by Rotary Club of Northlakes Toukley at Halekulani Bowling Club, Budgewoi.

With over 300 attendees from both private and public schools, 38 awards were presented to students who have exhibited exceptional leadership and a high level of civic responsibility.

“As the guest speaker at this year’s Northlakes Toukley Rotary Primary Citizenship Awards, I was thrilled to hear about the achievements of so many remarkable, local young leaders here on the Central Coast,” Member for Swansea Yasmin Catley MP said.

“Civic responsibility is one of the most important concepts underpinning our community. “Fulfilling that responsibility involves being actively engaged in the decision making process, and already these young people are doing just that,” Ms Catley said.

The awards are presented to students, mainly from Year 6, from19 schools on the Central Coast, with recipients hailing all the way from Wadalba in the south to Gwandalan in the north.

The annual Northlakes Toukley Rotary  Primary  Citizenship Awards are aimed at encouraging community participation by young future leaders on the Central Coast.
