Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s Visit
A graduating Year 12 student, Ethan Robinson-Jones, received a surprise visit from Prime Minister Scott Morrison last night. Ethan has been serving as a volunteer firefighter with the NSW Rural Fire Service since May 2019. The brigade that he volunteers with, Horsley Park Rural Fire Brigade, lost two members in the Green Wattle Creek fire in December 2019.
Last night Scott Morrison visited the brigade and spent two hours socialising with them, including our Year 12 student, Ethan. This visit was in recognition of the brigades sacrifice for protecting lives and property in the fires. Ethan stated that this was quite a surprise and he enjoyed speaking personally with the Prime Minister.
Opportunities such this are quite rare and highlight the community service that some of our students are involved in. We honour Ethan for his commitment to the Rural Fire Service. Ethan has also been advised that he will be receiving the NSW Premiers Bush Fire Emergency Citation for his involvement in the 2019/2020 fire season. Congratulations Ethan, we are proud of you.
