Congratulations to Jane Gray, Lesmurdie Senior High School Youth Worker who was awarded the 2017 Benchmark Award at Presentation Night.
The Benchmark Award is awarded to a staff member who has made a significant difference in the lives and educational outcomes of our students.
Her citation reads as follows:
Jane is a beacon in many of our students’ lives. As a highly skilled youth worker Jane assists students to navigate through trying personal and family issues, times of grief and is always there as a listener when our young people are stressed or anxious. Her skills in making students feel better about themselves are what defines her influence. We are incredibly fortunate to have Jane on our collegiate team and strongly believe that she has been influential in causing students to engage more meaningfully in their education here at Lesmurdie over many years.
Jane – we thank you and acknowledge that you are a most worthy recipient of the Benchmark Award for 2017.
Eight staff were also recognised for 10 years service to Lesmurdie Senior High School:
