TWO students from John Paul II Catholic Primary School are following in the footsteps of Fred Hollows by making a positive difference in their community.
Jasper Reilly and Tomas Pears, both in grade six, have been nominated for a Fred Hollows Humanity Award.
The boys will be recognised at a presentation ceremony held at Parliament House on Friday 23 September, which will be followed by the announcement of Tasmania’s junior ambassador.
The Fred Hollows Humanity Award aims to inspire and challenge year six students to show care and compassion for others, and make a positive impact in their school or community.
“Jasper and Tomas both live out these values in their lives,” John Paul II principal Fran Bearman said
“They are kind, helpful, care for others and lead by example.”
