HBPS winners of the Primary School Citizenship Award

Congratulations to Mrs Gillespie, Laura D, Genevieve, Isabella and Jessie who attended the Barwon Regional Order of Australia Association Presentations today.
The school's work in establishing the Percy Baxter Intergenerational Program at the McKellar Centre was acknowledged and they were named winners of the Primary School Citizenship Award. 
The aim of the award is 'to foster love of and pride in Australian Citizenship'. They were awarded a perpetual trophy, a certificate and $500 for the school.
Well done to these representatives and all students past and present who have participated in this program.
Laura is a past student who saw a need and encouraged and helped Mrs Gillespie to establish the program. Four years later our students are still keen to participate in this community program.
Hamlyn Banks is very proud of you all!
