COAL­STOUN Lakes State School stu­dent Ryan Gibbs who em­bod­ies his school val­ues and motto of “In­tegrity and In­dus­try” has been awarded the Ea­ton Giles Memo­rial Award.

The Year 6 stu­dent who is off to Bur­nett Col­lege next year said, “I didn’t know I had been nom­i­nated”.

“It’s (the win) pretty cool. I am dis­play­ing the trophy in the cab­i­net along with my other sport­ing tro­phies.”

Ryan is look­ing for­ward to Year 7 at Gayn­dah, es­pe­cially to learn man­ual arts and ag sci­ence. “I can’t wait,” he said. “The tran­si­tion days were great.”

Prin­ci­pal Ben­jamin Reed said Ryan had demon­strated in his role as school vice-cap­tain that he was sup­port­ive of the ethos, val­ues and tra­di­tions of the school.

“Ryan also em­bod­ies the pos­i­tive be­hav­iour char­ac­ter­is­tics of be­ing safe, re­spect­ful and re­spon­si­ble,” he said.

“He is known to be sup­port­ive of all his class­mates by en­sur­ing all stu­dents are in­cluded and par­tic­i­pat­ing, whether in the aca­demic ar­eas of school­ing, or in any other of par­tic­i­pa­tion of school life.”

Dur­ing the past year Ryan has rep­re­sented North Bur­nett zone in cricket, soft­ball and rugby league.

He has ex­tended his per­sonal sport­ing pas­sions and im­prove­ment with Cen­tral Bur­nett Ruby League and Gayn­dah Ju­nior Cricket.

Ryan was awarded best for­ward in his rugby league U12s side and voted best and fairest for the Wondai mini-mod car­ni­val by the coaches of all teams.
