Car­ing kids hon­oured

Comment News (Gosnells) - - #snapperth -

CHIL­DREN from three lo­cal pri­mary schools are prov­ing there is no such thing as be­ing too young to help oth­ers.

The Fred Hol­lows Foun­da­tion gave seven lo­cal Year 6 stu­dents a Hu­man­ity Award in recog­ni­tion of their com­pas­sion, in­tegrity, kind­ness and ded­i­ca­tion to help­ing oth­ers.

John Wol­las­ton Angli­can Com­mu­nity School stu­dent Dy­lan Os­borne was awarded a highly com­mended hon­our after ar­riv­ing at school one day with 50 roses for staff and fam­ily mem­bers to raise aware­ness of cys­tic fi­bro­sis after his 14-month-old cousin was di­ag­nosed with it.

Teacher Zayja Mon­teleone, who nom­i­nated Dy­lan for the award, said he had done a lot to ed­u­cate the school com­mu­nity on cys­tic fi­bro­sis and it was an ex­am­ple of how kind, car­ing and self­less he was.

“Dy­lan bravely shared his mes­sage to 500 stu­dents at a pri­mary as­sem­bly and ex­plained why he was on this jour­ney,” she said.

St Jude’s Catholic Pri­mary School’s Flo­rance Isaot, who mi­grated to Perth from Pa­pua New Guinea two years ago, was also recog­nised for con­stantly look­ing for ways to help peo­ple at school and in the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Piara Wa­ters pri­mary stu­dents Ali-Benét Ala­tini, Erin Pick­er­ing, Jiva Pan­nir, Matvey Orlov and Zip­po­rah Fish also re­ceived an award for their work as Cul­tural and Lin­gui­t­i­cally Di­verse am­bas­sadors, help­ing to pro­mote cul­tural in­clu­sive­ness and ac­cep­tance at their school.
