I would like to acknowledge the great work my local schools are doing in nurturing new leaders in our community. I have had the privilege of presenting school leader badges at many of my schools over the past month, and it is always a pleasure to see these students stepping up to take on these leadership roles in order to contribute to the school year. I have been able to honour students at Park Orchards Primary School, Milgate Primary School, Donvale Primary School, Donburn Primary School and Wonga Park Primary School. I congratulate them all on their achievements.
On another matter, I would also like to congratulate the Warrandyte community on another fantastic Run Warrandyte fun run held last Sunday. Run Warrandyte supported a number of charities, including MS Get Involved, STOP. One Punch Can Kill and River's Gift, a Geelong-based organisation that raises money to combat sudden infant death syndrome. This annual event has been held for the last eight years.
I would like to acknowledge all those who came together to organise the event under the direction of David Dyason, a Warrandyte local who is always there to put up his hand to promote and support our community. It is people like David who are the glue that make our community such a strong one, and I want to thank the many volunteers who work so hard to support us all.
