Eidsvold’s high-achieving students recognised

EMMA Hastings has claimed the prestigious Michelle D’Arcy Memorial Award for the Student of the Year at Eidsvold State School’s Awards Night last Friday.

The award is presented annually to a student “who continually demonstrates the four values that underpin the ‘Positive Behaviour Learning Program’ the school – being responsible, being respectful, being safe and being a learner”.

Principal Preston Parter gave his Leadership Award to Alissa Fort, a student who “has demonstrated exceptional leadership skills and been a role model for other students”.

She also won the Les Darlington Sportsperson of the Year Award for participating at the highest level in school-representative sport.

Brady Roth won the Lion’s Club ‘Fred Boase’ Continuing Education Award, which is presented to a Year 11 student who attended Eidsvold State School in Year 10 and is achieving the highest results in all subjects.

Tameesha Pope, Finn Newman, Archie Gitsham, Alissa Fort, Blake Bancroft, Grace Roth and Zane Kyle were all presented Bronze Sports Awards for representing the North Burnett, while Pearl Jenkins won a Gold Sports Award for representing Queensland in barrel racing.
