He’s one of the girls, Broadly speaking

The award recognised Mr Broad (80) for his long-standing commitment to the school, which his son, daughter-in-law, grandson and great-niece attended.

The father of nine has previously volunteered at Nollamara Primary School and Mirrabooka Senior High School.

‘When I first started volunteering at Ocean Reef senior high, all canteen staff were female and they would joke that they didn’t know what to do with me because I was a man,’ Mr Broad said. ‘It’s taken a few years, but now I feel like one of the girls.’

Principal Warren Smith said he was pleased to see Mr Broad recognised for his work.
