Youth lead the way to a safer community

SIXTY-three students from 13 primary schools in the City of Glenorchy have been recognised for their contributions to the community at the 10th annual Safer Communities Young People Awards.

Held during Children’s Week at Guilford Young College, the awards celebrate and promote how young people can contribute toward creating safer communities.

The awards instil pride in students, schools and community, as well as reward positive initiatives and behaviours, creating a caring and connected community.

The 2017 event saw 350 guests attend the ceremony, where students were presented with their accolades by Glenorchy City Council acting general manager Tony McMullen and Tasmania Police acting inspector Tony Kay.

Also in attendance to present awards were Glenyse Russell from Moonah Rotary, Sarah Piggott from Legal Aid Commission of Tasmania and David Ronaldson and Jill Sleiters from Glenorchy City Council.

The awards were hosted by the Glenorchy City Council in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Moonah and the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council.

Glenorchy City Council believes that it is important to showcase the valuable roles that children can play in building stronger, safer communities.
