Ms HENDERSON (Corangamite) (10:47): The Corangamite Medal is an annual award I have initiated which recognises one exceptional student in each participating primary and secondary school in my wonderful electorate. The metal celebrates the achievements of young people and encourages the leaders of tomorrow—and we all know how important that is. I have been delighted with how well the Corangamite medal has been received across a diverse range of schools. This year some 41 schools participated in the program. It was fantastic to visit so many schools to present the metal and to pay tribute to young people across my electorate who have made such an extraordinary contribution to their school community, and to the broader community in so many cases.

I will go through the winners, because I think it is very important that I acknowledge each of them in the national parliament and celebrate their achievements. They are from Trinity College in Colac, Laura De Lorenzo; St Ignatius College, Sophie Crothers; Aireys Inlet primary school, Mina Barley; Ceres Primary School, Cooper Field; Sacred Heart College, my old school, very proudly, Sophie Dowling; Colac West Primary School, Tianna Beckett; Lethbridge Primary School, Brooke Devlin.
