A tradition of achievement


As a gift the students were given a wooden frog and asked to see if they could coax it to make a sound.


One of North Lake’s most enduring traditions continued early in term four with the presentation of the Rotary Club of Booragoon endeavour scholarships.


The scholarships are awarded to students nominated by teachers and continuing at the campus in their next year of study. The scholarship winners are chosen on a criteria of character and attitude to study.


This year’s winners were Abraham, Kassidy, Don, Shukuru and Ice. The presentation was held at the new Dome Deep Water Point. In accepting their awards each of the students addressed the gathering telling a little of their story and aspirations.


Abraham told of his journey from Myanmar to India and eventually for a new life in Australia, gun welder Kassidy said she was hoping for a future in metal fabrication, Don has a passion for politics, Shukuru’s dream is to gain university qualifications and to one day be able to help in his home country the Democratic Republic of Congo while Ice told of her love of the business courses she is doing at North Lake.


The scholarship project has been operating for more that 20 years and as part of the evening club members and guests were told of the achievements of past winners. 

John Feary from the Rotary Club of Booragoon said: “It’s always a highlight of our Rotary year to award these scholarships and to hear what the past years’ recipients have gone on to achieve.”
