Northholm Grammar School Students

21 August 2019

Mr MATT KEAN (Hornsby—Minister for Energy and Environment) (20:30): I congratulate an amazing group of year 11 students from Northholm Grammar School. Ella Cotrona, Emma Mercieca, Ciaran Dyson and Denique Shai-Hee organised the amazing Masquerade Dinner on 22 June. I was very pleased to be able to attend the event. It was a wonderful event and a credit to the hard work of those students. The students are part of the year 11 leadership program and raised $29,200, which will be donated to Destiny Rescue, which is an organisation helping abused children around the world. It is part of the leadership program that students have an opportunity to work for a project that makes a difference in the community. Ella, Emma, Ciaran and Denique should all be very proud of their phenomenal achievement. The future is certainly looking bright in Hornsby with students like those coming through our schools. I give a special shout-out to Emma Burke and Jack Tanner who are currently watching this speech online.
