Mr ENTSCH: I recently had the pleasure of attending two award ceremonies at schools in my electorate.
The two awards ceremonies proved to me beyond doubt that our future is in capable hands.
At the Cairns State High School senior induction ceremony, I had the honour of presenting the JA Barnes Memorial Prize to Rubin Hong for being named Year 11 Dux.
Other award recipients on the day included Hugo Tsai, who was awarded the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority Year 12 Dux, and Lincoln Bourke who was awarded the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program Dux.
At Redlynch State College, primary, junior and secondary college leadership awards were presented to Aseem Aulakh, Eleanor Kenny, Jacob Park, Grace Roser, Natalie Bean, Mitchall Westernhagen, Aryan Barnes, Ashley Kleeman, Massimo Purdie, Renee Barber, Mailyn Vincent and Camdyn Ware.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of these student leaders, students and teachers from these schools across my electorate a very, very successful 2021.
