Mrs PRENTICE (Ryan) (16:13): Last week, I was honoured to present a Ryan community service award to Kenmore local Lisa Johnson. The Ryan community service awards encourage and acknowledge the excellent and tireless work of individuals and groups in the Ryan community. Lisa has devoted her time, including weekends and holidays, to working with the Kenmore District Kindergarten and Preschool Association. She has held a number of committee positions, including president, vice-president and workplace health and safety officer. Lisa's two daughters have both attended Kenmore District Kindergarten. During her time at the kindy Lisa has overseen the day-to-day running of the kindergarten and has held monthly committee meetings, while also taking on myriad jobs, including arranging contracts with builders, welcoming new parents and liaising with staff. She arranged the kindergarten's garden project, including the building of two cubby houses, new garden pathways and interactive artwork. Lisa is currently organising the building of two kitchens and the replacement of one of the play forts. Lisa's work has improved the kindergarten's standing in the community, its facilities and its financial position. We are very fortunate to have volunteers such as Lisa in the Ryan community. I congratulate her on receiving her award.
