Congratulations to Hiba El Ayoubi for tonight receiving a 2019 Jason Clare MP Community Service Award!
“Hiba is a dedicated and caring student committed to improving the experiences of all students at Bass High School as well as many others in our local community. Hiba served as SRC President during 2019 and has been elected as School Captain for 2020 as she starts Year 12.
During 2019, Hiba helped to run multiple fundraising initiatives at Bass High School including "Go Pink" Day where the school raised approximately $800 for breast cancer research. A major contribution of Hiba's work this year was focused on organising a fundraiser for local charity The Movement who help people experiencing homelessness throughout Sydney. Under Hiba's leadership, Bass HS raised over $1000 in funds for The Movement as well as an entire 4WD's worth of food and clothing in donated goods. Hiba also worked at a local childcare in Chester Hill as part of her community work placement at school and was praised for her compassion and cultural understanding shown towards children, parents and the local community.
As Hiba begins her role as School Captain, she wishes to focus on improving access to and understanding of mental health services available to teenagers. Hiba is an outstanding role model to all students at Bass High School and our wider community.”
