It was with great pleasure that I presented the Shaun Bromfield Environmental Champion Award to Felix O’Meara at the Bruny Island District School Final Assembly on Dec 18th. This is an annual award donated by BIEN in memory of founding member, Shaun Bromfield.
Felix is a fine young champion who at a very young age has displayed a passion and regard for the environment. He is a keen participant in school environmental activities and has assisted in wider community events such as the annual gull count.
The awards states that the recipient has
- Outstandingly displayed the value of caring
- Excellence in the skills of awareness and observation.
- Has researched around an environmental issue.
- Has used these skills in a practical way to inspire others, or to achieve a better outcome for the environment.
Felix not only received a cash prize for himself but also two books donated for the school library in honour of his great work. Well done Felix!
