Since 1989 The Rotary Club of Pakenham has been presenting grade 6 students
in the Pakenham and surrounding areas with special awards at their Graduation ceremony.
These awards have been accompanied by a small donation to help students transition
to Secondary School. In all cases the schools set the criteria and nominate
the student for the award.
Below are some of this year's recipients.
Chairo Christian School: Sophie Langner - “Chairo Spirit of Excellence Award”
Pakenham Springs Primary School: Jemma Kendall - “Outstanding School Service Award"
Minaret College: Hanifa Durani - “Leadership Award"
Lakeside Primary School: Maddison Wightman - "Academic Excellence Award”
Pakenham Hills Primary School: Jade Walters - “Citizenship Award”
