The 15-year-old, who has cerebral palsy, received the award from Lions International in front of his peers at an assembly at Atwell College.

�I am happy all the time and I always am trying different things to help me to live my life,� Joseph said.

�I always look for good things in my life.

�I felt the best to get the award. It felt like all my hard work paid off.�

Associate principal Brendon Bleakley said Joseph had worked hard ever since he came to the school three years ago.

�He�s a determined student and despite his special needs is an active member of the school,� Mr Bleakley said.

�He�s always trying and he gets involved.�

Joseph is currently lining up work experience with a local library.
