Past and Present Lourdanians Honoured at Queensland Day Awards - 13 June 2017

Congratulations to two of our stellar Lourdanians, Jiaan Erini (Year 7) and Cody Silva (Year 10) who both received a Queensland Day Award at Parliament House on 6 June.

Both girls were nominated by their classmates for the positive impact they make on their friends' lives, and for their contribution to the life and culture of LHC. This is another great example of our students showing the 'courage to be kind'.

A number of the adult Queensland Day Award recipients also have proud links to Lourdes Hill. These include Raylene Allen, Michaela van Balveren and Brian and Barb Daley.

Meanwhile, past pupil (and daughter of our Elder-in-Residence, Aunty Joan Hendriks), Professor Cindy Shannon has been named one of the 2017 Queensland Greats at this year’s Queensland Day Awards.

In a statement, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the prestigious Queensland Greats awards acknowledged exceptional Queenslanders and their contributions to the state.

“It is important that we recognise the incredible people and institutions that have helped to shape and strengthen our state,” she said.

Professor Shannon is the current Pro-Vice-Chancellor – Indigenous Engagement at The University of Queensland and the Chair of the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Foundation. She has previously served as Chair of the Lourdes Hill College Board and was the keynote speaker at our recent Reconciliation Assembly.

Professor Shannon’s true passion lies in enabling people from all backgrounds to achieve their potential. She is known for her extraordinary commitment to mentoring students, employees, and colleagues, and continues her tireless work to enhance conditions for all.
