Kildare College student, Aduer, has been recognised for her role in supporting the pursuit of justice in her community.
Aduer has won the Tea Tree Gully Youth Award in the category of “Leadership” - presented at an Awards Ceremony held earlier this month.
Aduer won the award for her demonstrated exemplary leadership within her community, and as a member of Kildare College. A kind, compassionate and empathetic leader, Aduer has shown a dedication to the pursuit of justice and a keen interest in educating others.
In her role as a Captain for Justice and Democracy at Kildare College, she has led initiatives in regards to Refugee Week and Harmony Day.
Aduer was also a Peer Support Leader this year - role modelling positive behaviour and assisting younger students in their transition to high school.
Outside of the College, Aduer is an Australian Refugee Association Ambassador, attending their training camp and supporting the organisation throughout the year.
Kildare College students Amatullah, Hayley, Alicia and Jayden were also shortlisted as finalists in the category of “Group Project” for the development of an app titled 'Honoring Australian War Spirits', an exploration of Australians who served in World War One.
The City of Tea Tree Gully Youth Awards, held annually, are an opportunity to formally acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of local young people, aged 12-25.
Aduer received a $300 gift card as well as a plaque to recognise her achievement.
