You may have heard in recent months about a group of quiet achievers here at Belconnen High School. The year 10 leaders, Charlee and Lila established Operation Stay Afloat, an initiative to help support the Tongan community ravaged by natural disaster. The students reached out to their school community for donations of non-perishable food items, hygiene products, etc.
The girls have been recognised for their effort and commitment in making a difference in the lives of others in our community and overseas.
A recent interview with ABC Radio, Charlee (and her mum) talk about Operation Stay Afloat.

Charlee and Lila are finalists in the ABC Community Spirit Awards (school age division) which will be announced this afternoon (Thursday, 16th June) at 3pm.
We wish Charlee and Lila all the very best!
