2021 WINNER: Thi Quynh Anh NGUYEN, Year 12, MT Lawley Senior High School

Anh has completed Year 12 at Mt Lawley Senior High School. She has achieved outstanding results and has a predicted ATAR of over 98. But it has been her activities as a mentor, tutor and leader that have resulted in this award. On numerous occasions she has acted as a buddy for new students so effectively that they have reported that they don’t know what they would have done without her, she had been so pivotal in their adjustment to life in WA.

She frequently becomes the facilitator in team projects, encouraging every member to participate. She recognises when other students are struggling and has devoted many hours to helping classmates revise. She has run study groups out of class time.

She frequently volunteers for school carnivals and cultural and sporting events. She has also been an active volunteer for Rotary and can always be found cooking sausages and participating in fundraising. Anh is not only an excellent student academically but also devotes her time to supporting other students, her school and the community.
