No Dole Beacon Foundation Leaders 2008

Strength in Unity

The function, hosted by Balga Senior High School was to thank business sponsors and supporters for working with youth from the school in providing development opportunities. Tiesha McGill, Manager of the Beacon Foundation spoke highly of the students who were "No Dole Beacon Foundation Leaders".  The achievements of this group was highlighted in a well presented powerpoint presentation which included their involvement in the Rotary Club of Western Endeavour's Big Quiz, the F1 Challenge and the Rotary District 9450 Community Conference held in Joondalup last month.

The meeting was chaired by District Governor Sue Rowell iand included representatives from the Rotary Club of Western Endeavour, Landscape Developers, Beacon Foundation, the Smith Family and both the teaching staff and students from Balga High School. 

Geoff Harris, Principal  of Balga Senior High School exhaulted enthusiasm for both business and community support for students which enabled the advancement of students experiences, and hence learning through participation, building confidence, enhancing communication skills as well as real life experience.  It was pleasing to note that earlier this week, Balga Senior High School was runner up for an award in Pastoral Care.

Shelley Withers thanked both teaching staff and students for their support of Rotary's projects and for sharing the vision of their principal to become better citizens.  Shelley commented "Rotarians look forward to working with both students and teachers in 2009". DG Sue Rowell presented students who have supported Rotary with Certificates of Appreciation and complimentary Subway vouchers.

Thanks was given to Ann Werndly, Year 10 Pastoral Care Coordinator for working with her team of students and to the Year 11 students for preparing a most enjoyable breakfast feast.
