Congratulations to Year 12 student Tathra Lowe for receiving the Yalari Senior Resilience Award for Victoria at the recent annual Yalari Fundraising Dinner.

Yalari is a not-for-profit organisation that offers quality, secondary education scholarships at leading Australian boarding schools for Indigenous children from regional, rural and remote communities. MLC has a long association with Yalari and works closely with Yalari to support our indigenous scholarship program.

As was said at the dinner:

"The Yalari Senior Resilience Award is for a student in Years 11 or 12 who has shown all-round resilience within the school and the wider community.  While maintaining their academic commitments, they also take on the responsibility of a well-rounded, thoughtful and considerate role model for younger students in their school and their home community.
 
Tathra has applied herself and found a way to work with the challenges of being away from home and completing her senior schooling in Melbourne.  She has handled the pressure of her last year at school very well, taking life day by day, assignment by assignment with maturity and a caring nature being a magnet for others in her boarding house.
 
Next year Tathra plans to study a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Melbourne."
 
Tathra with Mrs Toni Reid, MLC's Yalari Liaison and Murrindindi, Ngurungaeta of the Wurundjeri tribe and long a valued friend of the College.
