School principalBronwyn Ingersole nominated Cheyan for the Fred Hollows Humanity Award, which recognises Year 6 students who show care and compassion for others.

The decision to nominate her was an easy one.

Ms Ingersole said Cheyan’s kindheartedness is displayed both inand outside of the school environment.

Not only is she a helpful student, but she also chose to cut her hair for the Alopecia Organisation and was able to raisenearly $2000 for the charity.

“Cheyan is a deeply caring student who demonstrates true altruism on a daily basis,” Ms Ingersole said.

“For two years she has reliably raised and lowered the Australian Flag at school daily. She is the first to volunteer for any job and often simply completes a task because she sees that another student or teacher could use a helping hand or a friendly word. She doesn’t do it for reward or recognition but simply because she cares.”

Parents, teachers and other community members are invited to nominateany Year 6 student they believe deserves to be considered for the Fred Hollows Humanity Award.

Nominations can be made at梧桐夜网hollows.org/humanityawardup until Sunday, August 21.

All nominees will be recognised at a presentation ceremony on September 5 at NSW Parliament House.

The award is in its second year and the Fred Hollows Foundation founding director Gabi Hollows said it is a good opportunity to recognise young people.

“Fred used to say that the basic attribute of mankind was our ability to look after each other. The Fred Hollows Humanity Award recognises students in NSW who have reflected this value in their own lives,” she said.
