EIDSVOLD State School held its awards evening re­cently to recog­nise the ef­forts of students in the aca­demic, sport­ing, cul­tural and cit­i­zen­ship fields.

Mayor Don Waugh said he was im­pressed by way students took con­trol of pro­ceed­ings and the in­spi­ra­tion of guest speaker Fa­ther Bruce Boase.

Fa­ther Boase grew up in Eidsvold and his mother Vera Blundell still lives in the town.

Each year the Lions Fred Boase Con­tin­u­ing Ed­u­ca­tion Award is given to a stu­dent, se­lected by the school, to en­cour­age him/her to continue on to higher ed­u­ca­tion.

This award hon­ours Fa­ther Boase’s fa­ther who was a Lions mem­ber and very con­cerned that chil­dren be given the op­por­tu­nity to achieve their full po­ten­tial.

This year’s re­cip­i­ent­was Ash­ley Pope.

Clin­ton Kyle was named Sportsper­son of theYear for com­pet­ing in North Bur­nett Cross Coun­try and ath­let­ics teams and com­pet­ing in theWide Bay Cross Coun­try team at state ti­tles.

Prin­ci­pal’s awards were given to Jamie Hartwig and Lach­lan Nagle.

To be se­lected as a re­cip­i­ent of these spe­cial awards a stu­dent has to fill the fol­low­ing cri­te­ria: be cour­te­ous, con­sci­en­tious, par­tic­i­pate in all school ac­tiv­i­ties, give their best in all aca­demic ar­eas, of­ten falls just short of suc­cess but achieveswell with­out ma­jor recog­ni­tion and shows the way and al­ways sup­ports oth­ers.
