MS TIERNEY: On another note, I would like to congratulate nine high-achieving Western Victorian students who have received $5000 in education scholarships over the final two years of their senior secondary education. This program started in 2019 and recognises students who show high potential to succeed in their chosen pathway and who have strong results in their studies plus a dedicated involvement in their local Aboriginal community. Congratulations to Latoya Gadd and Alysha MacGowan from the Ballarat region; Harper Harradine and Tehya Clarke from Dimboola; Kayden Bell from Heywood; Shanika Jenkins, Corey Williams-Megee and Jaymee Drever from the Geelong region; and Janana Miller from Warrnambool. Like school upgrades, these scholarships show that the Victorian government is working hard to give every student access and a good start to life.
