WINNER - Outstanding Secondary Student: Lucy Pearl Harrison

Lucy Pearl Harrison - WINNER
Koorie Homework Group- Echuca

Lucy Pearl has been attending Koorie Homework Group in Echuca since 2017. She spends over 2 hours per day travelling from Echuca to Shepparton for school, but still manages to attend homework group at the end of the day. Lucy Pearl demonstrated great resilience when, after a period of non-attendance at both school and Homework Group, she eventually enrolled in a new school and, with encouragement from a tutor, returned to the Koorie Homework Group. She is now one of the most committed program participants. Lucy Pearl encourages other students to come to Homework Group and is always willing to help younger participants with their learning. She is friendly and encouraging to those around her and has become a positive role model for younger children. Lucy Pearl is always willing to take advice from the tutor and wants to help everyone to be their best.
