Sophie was nominated for the award after selflessly donating money she had fundraised to take part in the Spirit of New Zealand voyage to other students when she injured herself and was unable to participate herself. This exemplified the unique sense of whanau we have at Logan Park and demonstrated the school values brilliantly.
The Action Award is an initiative set up this year by George Sabonadière, the student representative on the Board of Trustees, to reward students for showing initiative and being good citizens outside of the normal boundaries of academia, sports and cultural activities.
The Action Award presents a $50 prize to any student who demonstrates community service, leadership and/or innovative thinking, and offers the opportunity for recipients to be connected with mentors and experts from the wider community to assist in the development of any specific projects they wish to pursue.
Winners are selected by the Funding Committee of the LPHS Student Council and must be nominated by themselves, another student or a teacher.
Nominations can be made through a paper form at the student office or via this online form: https://goo.gl/forms/SCfmAWNu2okzFjoy2
