MATTHEW Gasiorowski is reaping the benefits of hard work and commitment to his studies.
The 16-year-old has been named head boy at Sacred Heart College for 2017 – nine months after receiving a City of Joondalup Youth Award.
Matthew was one of six students who received $1000 to put towards his studies after being recognised for his high integrity, sound values and his status as a leader among his peers.
The Youth Awards encourage young people in the City to commit to further studies beyond Year 10.
They are open to students working towards an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank, those in general or Vocational Education Training studies and students who are following an alternate education program.
Applicants are also judged on community involvement and their relationships with their peers.
Applications close on November 25 at www.joondalup.wa.gov.au.
