Parklands Christian College students and employees have won four out of nine categories at this year’s Logan City awards for people with disability.
Year 12 student Callum Ogilvie won the outstanding leadership award alongside fellow year 12 Zohey Williams who was awarded for achievement.
Employee of the year went to groundsman Jack Smith and the champion award went to student aid Ann Schatkowski.
VET officer Deanne Hudson said Callum has really out himself out there by taking a role in the student leadership cabinet and Zohey has blossomed at school whilst doing a certificate course.
“They were all very humble winners, it was overwhelming for them and we are very proud,” she said.
“Ann was really taken aback that she was nominated let alone that she won.
“It was great to just watch their expressions when their names were called.”
Principal David Baskerville said he was thrilled when he heard Parklands students and employees names read out for each category.
“It reminded me of the care and support that all the team at Parklands do with these students and I express my appreciation for all they do each day in our school,” he said.
"In the early days of our school we realised that a number of our students needed extra help to become all they hoped to be.
“Life will always throw up its challenges for all of us, but when that is coupled with an inability to express your inner intentions, or an inability to run with the class mates because body signals do not connect to allow this, it makes it so much more of a challenge.”
