Students prove to be allrounders
THE Rotary clubs of Gympie and Gympie Cooloola held a joint dinner meeting in The Orchid Room of the RSL to present Rotary International Best Allrounder medallions to students in the nine secondary schools in the Gympie Regional Council area.
The students are nominated by their schools based on their involvement in academic, sporting, social and cultural pursuits in their school and community.
At their schools' presentation ceremonies, these students receive a bursary as well.
Hayley McFarlane of Gympie High had won a medallion when she was in year 10 at Tin Can Bay and was awarded again at Gympie High in her senior year.
Angela Bahr's sister, Jessica, had been presented one two years ago when she was in year 10 at James Nash State High.
The assembled members from the two clubs were impressed by the achievements of the recipients of the medallions.
Students who received allrounder medallions from the presidents of the two Gympie Rotary clubs in Gympie at combined meeting of the clubs were: Hannah Geri (Kilkivan), Michael Rayner (Mary Valley College), Michael Giles (Goomeri), Daniel Kolbe (Victory), Katie Connolly (St Patrick's College), Hayley McFarlane (Gympie State High), Angela Bahr (James Nash State High) and Kimberly McClintock (Cooloola Christian College).
