The Fred Hollows Humanity Award for Southern Vales Student

Congratulations to SVCC student, Shanae, who recently won a Fred Hollows Award for caring and putting others before self, for having empathy, respect and tolerance of others. 

(from the Fred Hollows website:) …

“The Award recognises Year 6 students who follow in Fred’s footsteps by making a positive difference in their community. It celebrates students who show compassion, integrity and kindness in their everyday lives, just as Fred did.

Since 2012, the Award has recognised more than 1300 primary school students across Australia. In 2017, the Award expanded nationally for the first time with students from all states and territories eligible for nomination.”
