Outstanding student wins community award

Lachlan with teachers from St Monica

Parramatta Marist High student Lachlan Roberts has won the City of Parramatta Active Citizenship Award for being an outstanding role model to younger students.

Lachlan was nominated by his old school, St Monica’s Primary School, North Parramatta, because he is a self-motivated student who strives for excellence in his learning.

“He is at all times respectful, honest and an active listener. Lachlan uses his impeccable manners in all situations. He follows the school rules and is an example to the younger students in our school,” the school said.

Lachlan has been the student leader on the Student Representative Council at St Monica’s this year and has initiated changes in the school to benefit the whole community.

“Lachlan performs random acts of kindness, maintains a friendly rapport with his peers and teachers and is a positive role model.

“He relishes involvement in activities that promote equality, fairness and social justice. Along with other Year 6 students he has been involved in working with an organisation to support refugees in our local community.

“Lachlan demonstrates initiative and can always be depended upon when he has been given extra responsibility.

Lachlan has represented our school in many sporting codes where he has exhibited pride in his representation of St Monica’s.

He cares for his school and the community environment and is enthusiastic in reaching his personal potential and his goals.

“He collaborates effectively with his peers and teachers and always motivates to maximise success. When Lachlan undertakes any leadership role he will always seek opportunities for growth.

“Congratulations Lachlan!”
