LHC students recognised as Queensland Day Award winners - 20 June 2014

There was a definite purple tinge to the maroon on display at the recent celebrations for Queensland Day, hosted by local MP, Mr Aaron Dillaway.

Following a fabulous performance from the LHC Flute Ensemble, five Lourdanians were honoured with Queensland Day Awards.

Year 12 students, Annie Ryan and Lucy McKenna, were recognised for their achievements earlier in the year at the Lions Youth of the Year competition. Lucy was awarded Speaker of the Night during the first round of the competition when she appeared at the Macgregor Lions Club. Annie was judged the overall winner in that round and again in the zone round before progressing to the regional final where, once again, she represented the College with distinction.

In the sporting sphere, LHC’s Glasgow Commonwealth Games bound champion diver, Georgia Sheehan from Year 10, received an award in recognition of her success in the international meet held recently in Germany. Georgia was busy training so was unable to be present to collect her award but the gathered crowd gave her a warm round of applause in her absence and wished her all the best for July.

Grace Malseed from Year 9 was another sporting star acknowledged on the day following her success in the Australian Figure Skating Championships in December. Grace returned from the championships with two individual gold medals and her club won three gold and one silver.

Finally, Sabrina Schreiber (Year 12, 2013), was honoured for academic achievement following her Highly Commended Award in the TJ Ryan TJ Ryan Memorial Medal and Scholarship program. Study commitments prevented Sabrina’s attendance but, again, the crowd was impressed in her absence with her strong academic record and leadership skills that qualified her for the award.
