Ms O'DWYER (Higgins) (13:58): Today I am thrilled to rise to congratulate those recipients of the 2011 Australian Student Prize in my electorate of Higgins. It is a significant honour which is awarded to only 500 students nationally, an award that recognises excellence in academic achievement. Students in my electorate that have received this award include: Sarah Jeffreson of Methodist Ladies' College, Bronte Payne of Lauriston Girls' School, Amelia Hamer of St Catherine's School, Jake Hinton of Caulfield Grammar School, Maple Huang of Melbourne High School, Max Kausman of Bialik College, Stephanie Lightfoot of Sacre Coeur and James Toohey of St Kevin's College.

I also acknowledge the families of these students, the parents and siblings, whose understanding helped these students to achieve their best. I would also like to congratulate and pay tribute to the principals, staff and students of the schools in my electorate, which include Lauriston Girls' School, St Catherine's School, Melbourne High School, Sacre Coeur, St Kevin's College and the King David School. These students and their schools should be congratulated for achieving excellence. I pay tribute to the hard work undertaken by these students, their principals and their teachers, and celebrate with them their significant achievements.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Ms AE Burke ): Order! In accordance with standing order 43, the time for members' statements has concluded.
