Thank you to Hot 91 for putting on another awesome outside broadcast for the Schultz Toomey O’Brien Lawyers, part of the Slater and Gordon Group Young Achievers Awards. Juade Maguire was the recipient of the $1000 prize for her academic and community achievements. Juade will be putting her winnings towards an end of year trip to Cambodia where she will be helping out a disadvantaged community. In order to help Juade achieve this, Principal Dr Wayne Troyahn wanted to contribute in some way so he surprised her by giving the $1000 that the school won to assist with her overseas mission. What an amazing thing to do! Congratulations Juade and we wish you all the best with your trip.
