Class of 2022 Graduate and Co-President, Kyeden Heir, has been acknowledged as a community champion at the City of Wanneroo Australia Day Ceremony.
Kyeden received the City of Wanneroo Charles Searson Youth Award for his contribution to the local community and the leadership qualities he demonstrated as Co-President of the Student Council and Clontarf Foundation representative at Girrawheen High School.
In his time at Girrawheen High School Kyeden acted as a positive role model to younger students, encouraging and motivating all students to achieve success and be proud of their culture. He has volunteered in soup kitchens, was a student ambassador and peer mentor for local primary school students, supported cultural sporting events such as NAIDOC carnivals, school competitions and coached basketball with younger students.
Kyeden is completing a traineeship with Woodside and later plans to go to university. Absolutely no doubt that he will achieve his goals!
Tracey Roberts MP – Federal Member for Pearce, who attended the ceremony on behalf of Hon Andrew Giles MP the Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs, said “Being on the School Board means I know how dedicated the staff at GSHS are and Kyeden is a shining example of the students who’ve been mentored there. It was also a pleasure to meet his proud mum Natalie and take this photo after the Australia Day citizenship ceremony in my electorate of Pearce.”
Well done Kyeden, we can’t wait to hear of your future achievements!
