The Positive Image Award recognises and rewards high school students from each of WA’s eight education regions who are role models for other students and have made a real difference in their school and community.
Alex, a Year 12 student, is a State Emergency Service volunteer.
‘It came as a surprise to me and I am very honoured to be given this award,’ he said.
‘I really enjoy the appreciation that I see on others’ faces when I help them. In general, I find it rewarding to be able to help others when they need it.’
Principal Donna McDonald described Alex as a humble, caring young man who always looked for an opportunity to assist others.
An overall winner will be announced in October.
