Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 9 Hansard (16 September) . .
The Fred Hollows schools award is held in Fred's honour to celebrate all of the great work that ACT primary school students do and inspire them for the future. Education is one of the ACT government's most important responsibilities. In the ACT we aim for all kids to do well in academics, but our schools have larger responsibilities to equip our students with the skills needed to achieve their full potential.
All schools are about values. We believe that inspiring students to be generous, caring and active citizens early in life will help them to become great members of their community regardless of where their lives take them.
In closing I would like to thank the Fred Hollows Foundation for their important work across Australia and the world. I would also like to thank the principals and teachers of Amaroo public school, Arawang public school, Canberra Christian School, Canberra Girls Grammar, Canberra Grammar, Charles Conder public school, Duffy public school, Forrest public school, Gold Creek public school, Hawker public school, Holy Spirit primary, Holy Trinity primary, Jervis Bay public school, Kaleen public school, Latham public school, Mawson public school, Namadgi public school, Radford College, Red Hill public school, St Edmund's College, St Francis of Assisi school, St John Vianney's school, St Jude's school, St Michael's school, St Thomas More's school, St Thomas the Apostle school, Trinity Christian School, Wanniassa Hills public school, Weetangera public school and Yarralumla public school.
I thank them for all the work they do that creates cultures of generosity and care in our schools, both through the programs they run and through the examples that they set. I hope the students who participated in the program continue their great work and continue giving back to the community by helping in various school, social and community activities.

MS LAWDER (Brindabella) (4.16): Recently I had the pleasure of attending the Construction Industry Training Council 2014 awards for outstanding graduating apprentices. The Council is a not for profit organisation that provides advice and assistance in industry policy, planning, delivery, resource allocation and other relevant issues for the building and construction industry.

The event was a great success, and I wish to thank the organisers and especially acknowledge CITC chair, Mr Bill Cleary. I also wish to congratulate those who received awards at the event.
