Congratulations to Kristine Smith from the Student Learning Support team at St Bernard’s College, Essendon, for winning the ‘Community Do it Better Award’ at the 2019 Scope Awards.

Kristine and her colleagues Guy Logan and Lynette Dawson collaborated with students, teachers and Scope therapists to support the needs of a student with disabilities at the school.

Through the creation of an individualised pilot program that was flexible and engaging, Kristine and the team created a pathway of activities that enabled the student to develop independence, learn practical skills and engage in the community.

In accepting her award, Kristine was overwhelmed. ‘None of this could have happened without flexible, supportive leadership and cohesive, strong teamwork’, she said.

‘I feel very privileged to work with people like this.’

The Scope Annual Awards recognise outstanding individuals and organisations that support people with disabilities to achieve their goals.
