Cath Keenan - 2016 Australian of the Year Local Hero!

We are barely able to sit still long enough to tell you that our amazing, generous, wonderful, inspiring and, let's be honest, magical co-founder and executive director Cath Keenan has just won the 2016 Australian of the Year Local Hero award! She will write something a little more considered once she comes out of her dead faint, but we know how honoured she was to be considered in such highly esteemed company. A huge congratulations to all of the finalists, and thank you to all the volunteers, donors and friends who have supported us and the students who come through our doors every day.

You can watch Cath receive her award - and give her speech - here.
